Miss that truck!
Tagged in: Disney History  
My favorite part of Thursdays! ADF's TBT pic! So adorable in your little red pancho! That truck was so iconic! Anyone wonder what happened to it? Designed by Bob Gurr and built by the Carnation Company in 1953-1954 it now lives, fully restored, at the Carnation Farm outside of Seattle. It is where the founder of Carnation and the next four generations of his family lived. It was given to them by the Disney Company which had put it in the back lot and did not know what to do with it. GREAT PIC! Thanks so much for posting it! - Duchess_SMK   5832.4 #14 8-15-13 9:32AM Like(9)  Reply

You answered my question, I always wondered where it went it was so iconic! You are the smartest DL person that I know!! Thank-you!!! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– - adisneyfamily  838.6 #191 8-15-13 10:07AM
Oh you look so cute!! Love the ponchos- yours with tassels and sister's with a Greek looking border.and the socks and your red shoes. So I understand that guests were able to buy flowers at Disneyland, but what would they do with them during the day? Also, was it your dad that was the shutterbug? Someone certainly took some great pics! Thank you, as always, for sharing!!! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint   4975.4 #18 8-15-13 8:39AM Like(1)  Reply
Thank-you! My mom knitted all of our ponchos and sweaters and made all of our clothes, it was a lot cheaper to do that back then and we could design our own. I think mostly they bought flowers on their way out of the parks, they sure added beauty and color to this area. My Dad took most of these pictures, and thank-you. I am so grateful that he did. I'll edit so I give him credit, I forgot this time. - adisneyfamily  838.6 #191 8-15-13 9:07AM
Same here... My mom and great grandma crochet all my stuff. I had lots of ponchos, dresses, sweaters. Much cheaper... They could always repair them, and when I outgrew it, unravel, and a new item would appear. I can not remember a time when I didn't know how to crochet. Great pic. Love that it brings back my own memories. - Sugarbuzz  174.6 #2214 8-15-13 10:16AM
So awesome! I went to the AP event before Disneyland's birthday where they talked about the various sights on Main Street and their history. One thing mentioned was that the flowers sold there weren't fresh, but it was a cool little prop that people could buy and they would often take pictures around the park with their flowers all dressed up. - rbeezy   702.9 #235 8-15-13 1:43PM Like  Reply
That makes sense, they were very pretty! That AP event sounds really cool! - adisneyfamily  838.6 #191 8-15-13 1:57PM
