Part of an original pencil layout created in 1955 for a full-color newspaper section presenting some of the " many delights and wonders that are yours to enjoy at Disneyland."

The text for this page:
"At Disneyland this summer (1955), you'll see and ride replicas of the Santa Fe trains that, back in 1869, began pushing their way West --opening a vast frontier to settlement and commerce."

Awesome piece of History, I love the early sketches of the entrance. I’ve seen those red lines in the upper left before; do you know what they are for? Thanks for sharing!

Those lines are a place holder for the block of text. The artist can plan the layout of the images based on the size and location of the text.

I'm so glad you like this stuff, too. It's just wonderful, isn't it?
