Welcome to Town Square!

If you were visiting Disneyland on October 27, 1956, this is what you would have seen once you crossed under the Disneyland Railroad underpass on the right side of the entrance. Need information? This festive little booth can help. Anxious for a souvenir? How about a fun Disneyland construction-type hat? There they all, stacked ready for guests to purchase.

If your eye zooms into the back area of the photo you'd see lots of guests lined up along this wooden construction wall, peeking at the future of Disneyland.

Want more vintage (& current) Disneyland photos? Head on over to my main website.

I wonder how many of those information booths there were of that specific style. I know there are two, one for the east entrance and one for the west entrance, but I've also seen one located in Fantasyland in old photos. Wonder if it's one of the Main Street booths transplanted or an additional booth. Nice vintage shot. Thanks, Dave.

I sure wish we could see what the guests saw when looking through those peep-holes. I think I've read that they were stereo photos, so presumably they were pictures of models (?). Love the Keppy Kaps.
