Town Square

Town Square was a good place to catch a ride, whether you wanted to take the Horseless Carriages, the Surrey, the Fire Wagon, the Horse Drawn Streetcars, and (later) the Omnibus. In at least one early postcard you can see a buckboard being used as well.

As you can see from the sign, it cost 10 cents for a ride on a Motor Car. What am I, made of money? We just spent an hour in a motor car to get here! In the background, mostly obscured by trees, is the sign announcing "International Street".

I see a piece of litter on the ground! That can only mean one thing...there are hippies nearby.

I think the litter is a rare and valuable Disneyland brochure. The little girl should pick it up and she can retire by selling the pamphlet to a crazed collector in 50 years.

The Disneyland Motor Cars advertising sign is very nice. I don't think it lasted that long.
