Birch Bark Lodge



Have you ever wanted to live in a wig-was-i-ga-mig? Thanks to this detail of an informative sign at Disneyland (from an August 1961 slide) you can practically build one yourself. One of these on a standard-sized lot in Southern California should fetch about $750K!
I know that Tangaroa will appreciate the hand lettering on this wonderful sign, I sure wish I could find more images with details like this!

All I can say is Wow, great shot of the sign explaining the Birch Bark Lodge! A great example of Disneyland's edutainment.

I've never seen a slide of this before - and the fact that there’s a cool sign to boot - wow!

Weee-oooo! Amazing!!!!

I'm going to go out on a limb and claim that Sam McKim designed the signage (although I have no proof), but a park sign painter hand lettered it off his design...
