(Disneyland/Walt Disney World, 1960s-70s) An original lamppost originally created for Disneyland’s New Orleans Square in the late 1960s. While Rolly Crump was developing the new “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride” for Walt Disney World, he needed several lampposts for the Town Square portion of the ride. Rather than create new lampposts, Rolly had the idea to order a few existing lampposts from Disneyland to incorporate into the Walt Disney World ride. After installing the lampposts in the attraction, this one was left over and rather than throw it out, Rolly used it as a functional light fixture for his home. This incredible prop has a fiberglass body with a metal support in the center. The lamppost measures approximately 11ft tall and is in good condition with some expected discoloration and wear from outdoor use.
