Captain Hook, Disneyland Hotel, Tustin & Orange

Today's image shows the Pirate Ship Restaurant at Disneyland in the 1960s. It seems this photo was taken after the Chicken of the Sea sponsorship was dropped and the "naming rights reverted" to Captain Hook. Click on the photo to see a much larger version with plenty of detail. Blog-readers from the Anaheim Colony will notice a young Mike Tucker seated next to his mom and sisters. The photo comes from his collection.
Speaking of Disneyland, Don Ballard has just launched a new blog about the history, development, and ephemera of the Disneyland Hotel. I hope his blog is as interesting as his book.
The Tustin Area Historical Society is looking for volunteers to help at their annual home and garden tour on May 17th. If you'd like to help, call the TAHS Museum at (714) 731-5701.
The Old Towne Preservation Association in Orange will hold its Preservation Awards Dinner on May 10, at the Woman's Club of Orange, 121 S. Center St. Nominations for awards will be accepted through April 10. For more information or tickets, visit otpa.org.
