Disneyland's Wonderland of a Toy Store

Charming! I'm talking about this piece of concept art for one of the first toy stores at Disneyland. Long before one time resort president  Paul Pressler made sure the shops at California Adventure 1.0 were more detailed than the attractions, Walt Disney's Imagineers were tasked with making everything full of rich, colorful, detail. Here's the proof- an old slice of art for a shop in Fantasyland. The style itself gives away the era of which it was produced. Sometimes the old ways are best.
