Welcome to Magazine Monday. Today’s post is one of those magazine articles that has lost the rest of its magazine! And to make matters worse, its only one page. At least it’s a big page as this must have been a Life size magazine. From July 30, 1955 its The Sphere Magazine. “The Sphere was a British magazine published by London Illustrated Newspapers" (Wiki-link).
Do you suppose £6,000,000 was $17 million dollars in 1955? If not, then they are off on their estimate just like everyone else was. Here’s a high resolution scan (20mb link) for you to gaze at while enjoying your tea and crumpets.
Did you notice the odd “Creatures of Walt Disney’s imagination” in the lower right photo in the above article? They of course were borrowed from the Ice Capades. Here’s the cover to the 1957 Ice Capades program.
7-8. “By Special Permission of Walt Disney”. Disneyland
Who is “Little Patti” and why is she wearing Dorothy Gale’s dress???
Looks like fun?
