(Disneyland, 1956) Hand-cut metal figural sign topper that was mounted on one of the two stops for the Main Street Horse Cars between Town Square and the Hub. At each stop, there was a flanged sign for the attraction with the name and price for admission. To make the readability easier, these hand-jigged metal silhouette images were mounted above the corresponding conveyance stop sign. Amazingly delicate in its detail, there were perhaps only two of these made for the park and once they were removed, they were not replaced…perhaps because of the difficulty in manufacturing them. These came from the collection of a former 1950s-60s Disneyland Maintenance Supervisor who rather than throw out outdated artifacts from the park upon removal, kept a growing collection in his garage. Measuring 6.25 x 19 in. and in very good condition.
