A Pictorial history of the Anaheim area, mostly post-1955 to current day, covering not only Disneyland, but the surrounding hotel/motels, dining establishments and other attractions. Contains a great selection of postcards and other advertising ephemera. The proofreading left a LOT to be desired (typos galore), but the information and underlying story is a worthwhile read.

The author & his brother lived in many of the run-down motels surrounding Disneyland in the mid 1980's - their annual passes

If you remember the Anaheim that surrounded Disneyland in the early years, you must add this book to your Disney collection. The only thing keeping it from five stars are a handful of typos. My copy is the second edition. Let's hope these typos are corrected for the third edition.

I borrowed this book for free for my Kindle. It was interesting, but left me wanting more. I have purchased some of David O"Neal's extinct attraction dvds and even preordered a book that has yet to be finished or delivered. I just wanted more information. Good luck to David and his projects.
