Love of History Takes Many Forms…

I firmly believe that a love of history in one area often seeps into many other areas as well – that it is possible to be completely enthralled with each battle of the Revolutionary War [1] and Vintage Ads [2] for Cream of Wheat or Firestone Tires at the same time.

Calling all Disney fans [3] !!!!!

Those of us who are Disney lovers in any form and specifically Disney Park lovers may find the following  interesting in light of the upheaval the Disney parks have faced over the last year+.

Later, they would move to annual passes which allowed locals to come and go at will, making Disneyland a part of their everyday life. What a memorable moment in Disney history for Disney Park fans.
