  • If it is on Main Street, there are a few places I haven't been into, there, where this might be housed.

    I've never been into the first aid center or the Make a Wish foundation building. It could be from either of those places.

    Though I have been inside it several times, it is not screaming Jolly Holiday bakery to me.

    This is a good one.

      That isn't by the restrooms close to the Plaza inn, is it?
      I never got to experience the Main Street flower market, but it's one of those quirky things I would have loved to have seen back in the day.

      /American Egg House use to be !
      You're correct that it's just off the Town Square.

      Your guess is correct! What you're looking at is the filled-in fireplace on at the back wall of the Mr. Lincoln preshow room! Here's a wider angle photo to give a better reference. Just above the frame is where the preshow video plays.

        Not sure why that is! I have my images stored on another website just to save space on my computer, and I copy them from there and paste them in the body of the forum post. I've taken to both attaching the file to the post now as well, but here's a link to the photo that stumped everyone but Mr. Wiggins.

          • Really good one, Alec. The tile floor was really throwing me off. The woodwork looked like a lot of things on Main Street, but the floor tile was matching the tile in the Main Street Candy Palace.

            Score one for Mr. Wiggins! I'm glad someone figured it out.

            • Is it ok to use pictures that were taken elsewhere in the resort? I have several good ones taken outside the parks, like in Downtown Disney & the Disneyland hotels.

                Thanks for a killer brainstumper! I don't remember ever noticing that piece in the fireplace. Without the clue of Main Street's Flower Mart I would've been stumped. On Main Street I could only guess Plaza Inn or Lincoln, and it seemed too dramatic for the Plaza Inn, so that left Lincoln.

                    • The P.T. Flea Market was located in the Bountiful Farm area of California Adventure, right next to the entrance to Bugs Land. This tin can fountain might have been a transition point where visitors change from normal size down to a bug's size.

                                This would be a 1926 pamphlet for the show Craig's Wife. Buena Vista Street is themed to the 1920s.

                                  I'm taking a stab in the dark because I've never been there myself, but I think I remember this from one of your trip reports. Is this a stained glass window in the private dining room at Club 33? If not there, then perhaps somewhere in the Disneyland Dream Suite?

                                    Main Street is correct (I think, haha). If you can guess the building it's in, I reveal the wider photo!

                                    This threw me off too. I did some research on the Morosco Theatre, specifically the Los Angeles counterpart to the New York original and found this interesting website. It would appear this is the theater referenced in the program, since it shares the same Broadway & 8th address in Los Angeles. This would even make it more likely to be set on Buena Vista Street, in my view. However, I figured maybe Imagineering found the item for BVS, didn't end up using it, and then recycled it because they thought the timeline was close enough in age to Main Street U.S.A. itself and therefore decided to place it there.

                                      This is a window for the Main Street Magic Shop then. The reasons I am coming to this conclusion are these:

                                      The present in the window suggests that, wherever this is, things are sold inside.

                                      The present is wrapped, which further suggests that, whatever is sold inside, is of a hidden, surprising nature.

                                      The gloves suggests a time out to tge theater, but Magicians also wear gloves, though not like the ones in the photo.

                                      Magic, at the time, was largely performed in theaters, and if you were seated on a balcony or in the back of the theater, you would want a closer view to see what's going on on stage, like what you'd get from the monocle scope.

                                      The theater pamphlet depicts a show from 1926, which is the same year Harry Houdini performed his final show, and then died. Many of the artifacts within the magic shop are purported to be from Houdini, himself, so it would stand to reason that there would be a hint towards him in the window.

                                      I could also be 100% wrong about where this is.

                                        It's in the expanded corridor between the lobby and the dining room. I don't think it's an original motif, but the windows were shrouded by curtains when it was still in it's original form, and I didn't bother to poke my head up and look at the time.
