Disneyland, located in Anaheim, California was created by Walt Disney, who was a talented and highly skilled businessman, illustrator, animator, and filmmaker. The preview and dedication day was held on Sunday, July 17, 1955, and televised nationwide by ABC TV, a major investor in the project. The grand opening was on Monday, the 18th.
Today’s lead image and the enlargeable version of it below shows a parking lot filled to capacity on one of the attractions first two days in operation. In the center foreground, is what appears to be a radio truck with a generator on a trailer behind it, apparently used by Disney personal or a subcontractor for communications. The rest of the lot is filled with 1940s to 1950s cars and trucks and a few from the pre-war era.
