as we come into this Square, the cares and worries of today are left behind and
we find ourselves in a little town in the year 1900. On one hand is the
City Hall and on the other is the Fire Station. Down Main Street we see
the Emporium, and all the many shops. There is the Old Music Store, the Penny
Arcade with its blaring Orchestrion, the Popcorn Man, and the Old Calliope.
Jiminy Cricket: Hey, Walt, wait
for us! Well, we just made it. These modern high speed horse cars
wait for no one! But they're grand to see all the sights of Main Street.

always plenty of excitement on Main Street, especially when the Disneyland
Band is giving a parade. Uh-oh, here they come now!

Well, here we are at the Plaza. Now we'll have to get out and walk, because this is the end of the line.

Background illustrations for our 1958-Welcome, 1958-Main Street, U.S.A., and 1958-Fantasyland, and Santa Fe & Disneyland Railroad pages were scanned from a trio of 3"x5", single-fold notecards. The back side reads, "© Disneyland, Inc." Sorcerer Mickey welcomes any information that guests may care to offer as to the history, value, and missing members of this notecard set. These illustrations seem to represent conceptual artwork predating the opening of Disneyland.
