59 Years Ago Yesterday: Campfire Girls

After a few heavy posts, I'll go a bit lighter today with an image from the USC Digital Library featuring the Los Angeles Area Camp Fire Girls from Alhambra District, July 30, 1955. The publicity caption reads:

Los Angeles Area Camp Fire Girls from the Alhambra District pause on the bridge in front of the Fairy Castle at Disneyland. Left to right: Sandra Ayers; Linda Webb; Sandra Smith; and Brenda Lewis, were among 200 girls given the day at Disneyland by the Camp Fire Girls for selling the most candy mints in the Camp Fire Girls' candy sale.

Have to zoom in for a closer look at the balloon, which features what appears to be a seal, balancing something on his nose. It almost looks like the Adventureland logo seen on The Wonderful World of Disney.

I remember Camp Fire Girls commercials on TV when I was a kid in the 1960s, but there doesn't seem to be much if any publicity about them anymore. I loved their classic logo. Candy mints are nice, but it's kind of hard to beat those Girl Scout Cookies.
