Finishing up the 1950’s Medley



The last few of this 1950’s series begins with a shot of the Adventureland entrance; looks like this lady is trying to scoop our photographer with HER shot–the nerve! View #2 was taken just inside the Frontierland gates, which often seems to be the least crowded of all the Disneyland entrances in the morning.



Here’s a crowded view of how this area looks today:



As a follow-up to my previous Sgt. Preston/Ken-L-Ration posts, David from Sherman Oaks did a little digging on ebay and came up with these fantastic shots showing the T-Shirt & Button from the 1957 contest:







HUGE shout-out to David for sending these fantastic photos from his collection! DVD/Blu-ray update: “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” is coming out next week on December 2nd. This installment is a little darker than its predecessor, which is probably why I like it better! Get it now on Amazon.com.

I have one of those buttons, but it never occurred to me that it might be from the same Disneyland contest! I would imagine that Ken-L-Ration had other contests around the country?? Still, very cool to see the kids in the background actually wearing the shirt!
