Disneyland Main Street Construction, Pt. 2



Although I don’t have any statistical data to back this up, I would hazard a guess that the Main Street Train Station is the most photographed building at Disneyland next to the Castle. First-timers to the park cannot resist having their picture taken in front of the Mickey Floral display, and my collection is full of these gems. Here’s a shot of the iconic building while it was still under construction; no Timex clock yet...the Mickey floral is but a chalk mark...and even a few of the windows have yet to be installed. Here’s an October 1955 of the finished product:



And a recent shot from last fall for comparison:

My husband and I love your blog and looking at all the amazing old photos. Thanks! By the way, could you tell us how we could buy some of those amazing vintage Disneyland posters (like the ones near the front entrance of the park)? Thanks a lot!

The Mickey floral does attract the tourists for sure! I love the train station inside and out. A nice place to visit for a quiet spot out of the crowd, too. :0)
