    Disney Holiday Cards

    Well, It’s getting to look a lot like x-mas! Here are some holiday cards our friends at D23 sent DbM today. They are great snapshots of how the company’s artistic style changed through the years. 1936 1968 1935 1956 1966 Tweet

  • Disneyland Pre-Opening Postcards

    Here is a wonderful group of concept art postcards made for Disneyland. I really enjoy the different artistic styles used for each land. I think I’ll call this group “Entrances to Imagination.” Main Entrance – I guess all the open white space on the bottom of the card was for you to write on after you ran […]

  • The Art Corner Post Cards

    Some of the most prized postcards in my collection are from The Art Corner in Tomorrowland. I remember collecting them in the early 60’s and displayed them in a special section of my Disney postcard album. As far as I know these eight plus two animated cards are the only ones produced and they were […]

  • Favorite Main Street Postcards

    Here are a few of my favorite postcards of Main Street U.S.A. They were collected in the early sixties from different park visits. I always bought five to ten cards each trip, filling up my scrap book by the time I was 10! Tweet

  • Disneyland Panoramas

    In 1956 Disneyland had 13 panorama post cards produced for sale in the park. They measured 3 1/2″ by 11″. Here are the final three. My favorite is the Hippo “Skinny” getting it from our Skipper “Skippy.” Tweet

  • Disneyland Panoramas – Frontierland

    In 1956 Disneyland had 13 panorama post cards produced for sale in the park. They measured 3 1/2″ by 11″.  I like the composition of the Indian Village photo showing Fort Wilderness in the distance. It makes it feel really real. The bottom picture clearly shows Tom and Huck’s Treehouse before the trees grew around it. […]

  • Disneyland Panoramas – Fantasyland

    In 1956 Disneyland had 13 panorama post cards produced for sale in the park. They measured 3 1/2″ by 11″. Everything seems so bare.  On the top picture look beyond the area that became “Alpine Gardens.” You can see the Skyway towers off in the distance. In the middle picture behind the Cinderella castle are the […]

  • YES SI-AM

    “I am Siamese if you please – I am Siamese if you don’t please.” One of my favorite postcards from the Art Corner circa 1958 featuring Am and Si from The Lady and the Tramp. Note the lower Disneyland graphic “D” is broken and printed above. Other cards I have seen show the same printing error. Tweet
