Can you believe someone - a very lucky someone - found this at Goodwill??
Walt Disney is considered by many to be the greatest animation producer of all time. He got his start in animation at the Kansas City Slide Company where he met many of his future animation colleagues. He started three animation studios in Kansas City, including the Laugh-O-Gram Film Studio where he and his staff advanced their animation skills. In late summer of 1923, Walt moved to Hollywood where he and his brother Roy started the Disney Brother’s Studio, which later became the Walt Disney Studios.
Walt Disney founded his first professional film studio at a building designed by noted Kansas City architect, Nelle Peters, in May of 1922. He incorporated his new company with the Missouri Secretary of State’s office. He called it “Laugh-O-gram Films”.
The business operated on the second floor of the new building at 1127 East 31st Street just a block east of Troost and a couple of blocks west of the Paseo. At one point, Walt employed 11 people and occupied five rooms on the west end of the second floor of the building.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
