I found this neat old puzzle of Disneylands
town square at an antique mall also. One interesting thing
about the puzzle the moving van on the far
side of Town Square reads Bekins on the side of it. According to Disney A to Z
Bekins Van Lines operarated the Town Square locker area
from 1955 to 1962 so that dates the puzzle. Global Van Lines
(which are the ones I remember) ran the area
from 63 to 79. I have a Florida, Having a Great Time postcard
with Mickey and Minnie on one of the Main
Street vehicles in front of the Global moving Van (obviously this
was taken at DL and just re-used). I've got
a scan of it up on my postcards page.
Does anyone know if the van is still there? if it's not do you know
when it was removed? Do you know where
there is a web site with a current picture of that part of town square
(where the moving van was) if so
e mail me .
There were other DL souvenirs I had that didn't fare so well. My late lamented DL postcard collection (although my newer collection of Disney postcards is larger) and back issues of Disney News. Oh well I've still got a few more things to scan from that era.
More recently I've been going to WDW which has its own pins, books
(which I haven't scanned yet), tickets (these comprise the
wallpaper on my index page ), and
