(Disneyland, 1970) An incredible archive of "Yippie Day" at Disneyland. On August 6, 1970, Disneyland was taken over by "Yippies", an extension of the anti-Vietnam movement known for their political activism. The "Yippies" raised marijuana flags on Main Street, climbed the masts of Captain Hook's Pirate Ship, and took over "Tom Sawyer Island". The spectacle caused Disney to have SWAT Police at the park to protect their regular guests and employees. This day marked the first time in Disneyland history that the park had to close early. This amazing set includes over 100 photos of the event taken by Disneyland Security and newspaper reporters of the day, and approximately 2000 feet of never-before-seen 16mm color film which documents the entire event. The film was turned over to Anaheim Police during their investigation of the incident and was later given to one of the security supervisors on that day, who has kept it ever since. The 8"x10" black and white photos are housed in a 3-ring binder with photo sleeves and feature hand-written numbers on the back. This set is in excellent condition and represents and incredible moment in Disneyland history.
