Christmas in jail, Disneyland's tobacco shop, etc.

Today's photos were taken at the Orange County Jail, around Christmas, sometime in the 1940s. I particularly like the cobbled-together Santa costume. After a couple cups of festive holiday "pruno nog," perhaps the other prisoners didn't notice that "Santa" just had a newspaper hat and a mop on his head. Reminder: This weekend is the holiday French Park home tour.
I posted some photos from tonight's Newland House Museum event over on Joe Shaw's blog. The event continues tomorrow.
Yesterland has added a look back at the days when Disneyland had its own tobacco shop.
