Typed Letter Signed on Disneyland Inc. letterhead, Quarto 8 1/2" x 11", dated June 29, 1955, from Walt Disney to Charles R. Pearson, Mayor of Anaheim. Written 18 days before the opening of Disneyland, Disney expresses his gratitude for Pearson's support. Disney writes, "Dear Charley: Sunday afternoon, July 17th will be a long-remembered event for both of us. Sunday afternoon, July 17th -- the day that DISNEYLAND becomes a living reality -- is also a day that you and I will long remember. As the date draws near, I wanted to write you a note, expressing my sincere appreciation for the support you've given to all of us in the development of DISNEYLAND. That support, in no small measure, will contribute to whatever success DISNEYLAND may enjoy. I'm looking forward with much pleasure to having you join us for the preview and dedication of DISNEYLAND. Cordially, Walt Disney." Signed beautifully in blue ink. A historic letter and an important Disney memorabilia. Custom-matted and framed along with black & white photos of Walt Disney and the various stages of development of Disneyland. A schematic aerial view of Disneyland is also included. The frame measures 45 1/4" x 36". In fine condition and ready for display.
