Souvenir Stationery

Post by GreatAmerica4ever » Mon Aug 14, 2006 2:36 pm

I don't have an extensive GA souvenir collection. Mostly a few of the booklets and park maps. But the most precious thing to me that I own is a collection of stationery which features six different designs of pages, one of each themed areas of the park.

Does anyone else possess this? I would love to scan each page and share them with you. I think it is definitely a collector's item from the Marriott era!!

I have the stationery scanned. However, can someone tell me how to post it on this website. I thought I could easily copy and paste this to the reply, but I can't.

Thanks!

Uploading should be working again now. If you don't already have a photo album, follow the steps here to get started. Thanks.

The souvenir stationery scans are in the photo section. Thanks Steven for helping me with my mission!

This souvenir stationery was purchased at Gurnee in 1982 or 83. There were 24 assorted pages (4 of each themed Marriot area) and the price was $1.50. The sheets measure 5 1/2'' x 9''.

Notice that many of the classic Marriot rides and attractions shown in the illustrations are no longer in both parks.

I still need to try and scan the cover properly. Since this was my first attempt on adding photos, I hope everyone enjoys them!
