In a belated celebration of Matterhorn's tremendous recent postings of Main Street photos, here is a one-page catalog of the Pen Shop. Check out the corny jokes....the Jungle Cruise must not have been hiring that day.
Here's another catalog postmarked 1957, but I think it may be from 1956. Lots of GREAT souvenirs at very competitive prices!
More catalogs to come. I have a bunch from the Main Street stores.
And now...a diatribe. I took the family to Disneyland on Sunday, and I have to say: Toon Town is a dump. The restrooms are beyond disgusting, the "attractions" are not attractive, and the whole thing needs to be shut down for six months so they can repaint. And who the hell is "Gadget"? Isn't he a character from a TV cartoon that was cancelled 6 years ago? Even the Roger Rabbit ride manages a deadly equation: blah ride + endless line = no thank you. The only redeeming factor is that my kids like it, but man, it depresses and frustrates me.
End of diatribe.
