Posters! Posters! Oh yeah, and the train station and that other stuff. But the posters, boy howdy. I have two Alice in Wonderland attraction posters, but I need the version seen here, with the word "Fantasyland" at the bottom of the image. It's way rarer than the non-"Fantasyland" version that I have. And the wonderful "Rocket to the Moon" poster is practically the Holy Grail for collectors... it's rare and has an amazing, iconic design. Something tells me I'm not ever going to have one of those, though I recently had an opportunity to get one for $6000 - actually a reasonable price, you might be surprised to hear. But... no can do. Oh well!
Now (from a different lot) here's a view taken from the station looking out toward the entry gates and the parking lot beyond. I think that the little display to our right held issues of the Disneyland News.
Zooming in, we can see The Fonz trying to talk his way in without buying a ticket. The ticket takers appear to be wearing a costume that includes military-style "garrison" hats. They had licenses to kill!
