In 1965, Disneyland was in the midst of a great expansion- Pirates was on its way, as was Haunted Mansion, and a brand New Tomorrowland. Guests visiting the park had an opportunity to purchase a souvenir book filled with alot of concept art of upcoming attractions. However, this book also has some rare art of existing attractions, shops, and restaurants. This small piece found on the Main Street pages catches my eye- The Plaza Inn. Instead of a photo, this beautiful piece of art was displayed surrounded by the usual photos. It is quite small- but stunningly elegant- and perfectly captures the mood of this wonderful restaurant.
