Horseless Carriage Gazette - Nov. - Dec. 1955

Welcome to Magazine Monday. Today’s magazine is an oldie, from November-December 1955 it’s the Horseless Carriage Gazette. The cover features a well-lit Main Street Cinema at night on what appears to be New Year’s Eve, although the “Happy New Year” on the banner appears to be “added” after the photo was taken.

The inside cover features some nice color photos, those cars a truly priceless today.

Let me know if there are any articles that interest you and I’ll post them next Sunday.

The Horseless Carriages do look at home on Disneyland's Main Street don’t they? 80 of them turned out for the event on a “recent Sunday” Hmmm, I can‘t find this event in my Disneyland Almanac, Jason, what gives?

There are some real bargains to be had here!

Fun reprint of some old Sears Catalog toys.

The color photographs on the inside of the back cover are interesting in themselves. That sure looks like Knott’s Berry Farm in the top photo! And the bottom right photo is “Ward Kimball’s Locomotive”, neat!

Mobilgas Special - Contains Lead, YES!

I can almost swear that I saw a mention of a Horseless Carriage event in Jason's book! Meanwhile, I love that there was a magazine dedicated to those old vehicles.

The Keystone Cop on the cover looks like it might be the same guy from a Vintage Viewmaster Reel.
