|Walt Disney introduces the world to Disneyland, October 27, 1954|
Walt referred to the 1:48-scale model of Main Street built by Fred Joerger and Wathel Rogers, with the overall rendering of the park painted by matte artist Peter Ellenshaw on the wall behind him.
Did you get to see the original Main Street model when it was displayed on East Plaza Street at the entrance to First Aid in the early 1970s? Or later, at the Disney Gallery in New Orleans Square, perhaps?
