1955 Frontierland Depot
Although not as large as its big brother over in Town Square, the Frontierland Depot is definitely one of my favorite stops along the Grand Circle Tour of the Disneyland Railroad. Here’s an early 1955 shot of the Depot, along with 2 action (nice alternative for saying blurry) views of the Ripley from the same batch. Who left that Baggage Door open?!?
Meanwhile, over in the merchandise area of the house, Oswald the Rabbit is back and appropriately teamed up with Lucky Brand Jeans. Here’s the official press release:
“After their first season of the sell-out collection, Lucky Brand, America's neighborhood jeans store, and Disney Consumer Products today announce that they will give rebirth to Walt Disney's first icon, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. The predecessor to Mickey Mouse, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit returned to The Walt Disney Company in 2006, long after his original theatrical debut in 1927. Just in time for summer, this limited-edition collection of T-shirts, featuring Oswald will be sold only at Lucky Kid, Lucky Brand stores and online at luckybrand.com.”
