I posted this card a while ago on Sundry Collectibles…reposting here.
Once Disneyland became a well established tourist destination…which, if you think about it, was really from it’s opening day onward…it started appearing on other tourist marketing brochures and the like. This card, an advertisement for the U.S. route 70 freeway, is one such example.
The caption near the bottom of the card sold me: “2926 MILES ALL PAVED”!!
I had never seen this card up until a couple weeks ago when one popped up on eBay. Maybe I wasn’t looking very hard, because there is another one there now. A worthy addition to the collection.
Until next time….
