Bekins Friday

I was really happy to obtain this October 1958 vintage image from Disneyland’s Town Square. It’s the first really decent view in my collection of the Bekins moving truck that guests could pose next to. My first zoom was to get a closer look at the artwork; in doing so, I noticed that both guests had some kind of ribbon attached to their outfits.

Could this be part of the The Magic Kingdom Club that started back in 1957? The MKC was an early Annual Passport program that offered memberships free of charge both for companies and their employees, encouraging families to visit the parks by giving them discounts.

Last closeup is of the Grand Canyon Diorama attraction poster which had just been unveiled:

I'd love to have that wagon just for the artwork! KS

Isn't that cool? I am guessing it was handpainted.
