Disneyland Postcards — "I have been collecting postcards from the park since the mid 80s', but only a few here and there...since then, I have acquired over 800 postcards, dating from the first one ever printed, to the current ones sold today." Includes 50 years of Disneyland postcards, the backs of cards and Then and Now shots of some of the more scenic places.

And for sheer randomness factor, this one's my favourite.

Very nice.

Remember when the whole world seemed as simple and fantastic as Disneyland itself?

Why did parents dress their children as sailors?

Interesting, how over all that time the only thing that changed was the future.

It's amusing how dusty, scraggly, and under-landscaped the 1955 Disneyland was!

I was just there to celebrate the 50th and it was just as I remember it. Thanks for the link!

I can't stand Disneyland, but it is fun to look at the loathsome stuff on the postcards. Do they still have mermaids? No, of course not. They had to make it even less interesting.

I went to Disneyworld (Orlando) in 1998, and I got to meet The Little Mermaid in the cave behind Captain Nemo's Nautilus. She was quite a sport, getting her picture taken with a (then) 26-year-old guy like me with no kids in tow.
