Duped at Disneyland



I was excited to receive this first image when I purchased it; granted, it looked a little dark, but I figured I could bring out some detail. Unfortunately, the seller (who took his sweet time in shipping it), also chose to use the word "original” when he listed the slide instead of marking it a “duplicate,” which the slide holder clearly states. It’s still a cool shot of Trinidad pushing his cart down Main Street towards Central Plaza. Note the Ruggles China and Glass Shop on the far right.

What’s that little tent in the alleyway next to the Red Wagon Inn? Not knowing the date of this dupe, it’s hard to say exactly. It could be the Disney Artists Exhibit, which was basically a sale of old Disney animation cels...



Or it could be the promotional area for Edison Square, which never came to fruition.



Today, it’s where you go for First Aid.

I'm leaning toward it being the Artist Exhibit because of the stripes on the towers/pillars. They are candy cane like in the slide you purchased, as well as the Artist Exhibit photo, while in the Edison photo the pillars feature standard stripes. Regardless, these are fantastic images! As always thank you for sharing!

Dave's duped Disneyland duplicates are still wonderful to look at. Us Disneyland fans love all the pictures you share with us. Thanks, Dave!
