(Disneyland, c.1958) A rare metal oil can which reads "Property of Chief Engineer - Walt Disney's Disneyland". These oil cans were included with a popular Chief Engineer costume boxed set created by L.M. Eddy Manufacturing Co. in the mid-to-late 1950s. The set allowed children to dress up as the iconic Engineers of the Disneyland Railroad, and this oil can beautifully captures the early years of the park and the enthusiasm of Disneyland's early visitors to bring aspects of the park back home with them. Measuring 12" tall, the oil can is in fair condition with some surface wear throughout from use.
