Thanks to the unbelievable (but not unsurprising) generosity of another blogger and old friend, I acquired, at a very steep discount, this rare and otherwise pricey postcard of the Art Corner interior.
I don't actually collect postcards; my obsessive-compulsive side would want a complete set, and that's a virtual impossibility. And there's always THE NICKEL TOUR to page through. But....this one is special. It's the only postcard I own other than some that my dad got when he went in 1955, but he cheaped out and only got those freebie Upjohn ones. However, I would love to get my hands on one of those jumbo Nature's Wonderland map cards. They are SWEET!
I get a headache and all jittery just thinking what one could have bought with $5 at the Art Corner back then. We could start with the now infamous McKim 1958 map with the Viewliner: $1.00, including shipping! And rolled! Oh, and let's not forget a hardcover 1st Edition of "The Story of Walt Disney" hand-signed by Walt himself: $3.95. Quick....get me some Tylenol and a double Cuervo.
I have a bunch of Art Corner catalogs in my collection that I will post as time goes on. The prices found therein will make your head spin.
