Are you ready for an accounting of another trip to Disneyland, this time it’s New Years Day – January 1, 1958!. You may recall from two previous posts (August 29, 1957 - link) and (August 20, 1958 - link) there were a bunch of auctions on Ebay that were from a teenager who visited Disneyland frequently in the late 1950’s. These auctions have; Parking lot Flyers, shop bags, parking tickets and these great little “notes” kept by the Junior guest showing how much was spent on each visit. The Ebay seller had a few listed last week and I got one for a good price, he also has 6 more listed now that are ending soon so be sure and check them out here (link).
There’s our favorite thrifty Scottish Dumbo! You’ve seen him before along with an amazing amount of vintage brochures being posted every Monday over at “Stuff from the Park” - brochures (link).
Mom, Dad, Children, EVERYBODY! Buy ticket books!
The front and inside are repeats of summer 1957 brochure, but the back of this one is customized for winter and the special holiday hours. I’m looking forward to the Slovakian Nations show on December 20th; I’m thinking Major Pepperidge might join me…
The “accountant” dated this “1957” but I’m thinking he was still stuck in 1957, how many of us has done the same things, heck I do it for weeks of each new year! That paperweight was $1.00 plus tax, the receipt from Geppetto’s Work Shop is shown later in this post.
Once again our two guests did NOT purchase ticket books (they appear to never have purchased ticket books). It’s my guess the older sibling was reimbursed for every penny spent so he wasn’t concerned with saving a few cents on cumbersome ticket books. Bear Shoot? A rather short evening 5:10pm to 6:35pm, they must have lived near by.
The parking ticket showing both “M”ornng and “E”vening locations!
Here’s the receipt from Geppetto’s Work Shop.
This receipt for .47¢ from the Emporium doesn’t match the total of $2.08 on the accounting sheet (Ruby necklace and earrings) maybe there is another receipt that’s missing that makes up the difference.
Even the Emporium bag was saved, but where is the Ruby Necklace?
