Walt Wednesday #45
This concept art of the Main Street, U.S.A. train station is from 1954. It was included in prospectus packets, titled “The Disneyland Story,” which were presented to potential investors and lessees to give them a better idea of what Walt Disney planned to build in Anaheim. This artwork was one of 26 pieces, all 8”x 10" in black and white, that were included in the packet. Of course, what really stands out in this early artwork is what’s not depicted — the iconic floral Mickey Mouse head. Would you ever want to see a floral “Disneyland” replace the floral Mickey? Perhaps for a limited time?

Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
