Regular readers of this blog know that I am crazy about Disneyland's wonderful silkscreened attraction posters. So, as you can imagine, I especially love this beautiful photo from October, 1962! Just look at those colors and superb designs. The photographer must have been impressed as well, I don't think it's an accident that the posters are featured so prominently.
Probably the rarest of the bunch is the 3-level poster publicizing the restaurants that were sponsored by Stouffer's Foods; the Plaza Pavilion, the Enchanted Tiki Room, and the Tahitian Terrace. Yes, this is from the days when the Tiki Room was intended to be a restaurant - which, as you know, is not how it turned out. It's cool to see this poster on display at the park!
Here's another neat one from the same lot; it's a really nice view of string of Pack Mules loping along a trail, possibly just above a Mine Train (or maybe even the Disneyland Railroad?). Good photos of the Pack Mules are rather scarce, and this one is particularly crunchy.
