I scream, You scream, We all scream for ICE CREAM!

Aw! The Carnation Ice Cream Parlor is no more on Main Street. In it's day, it was the perfect blend of theme and corporate sponsorship.

Here's a great overhead shot of Carnation's corner in 1955...

And here's some menus from the shop. One from 1955 and one from 1957...

I think I'll have a 2000 A.D. Special!

Wowee, is that menu with the blue cover from Disneyland?? I know they continued to make the ones with the red covers until the 60's. A friend once told me that there was another Carnation Cafe in Los Angeles, which I was surprised to hear, but I don't know much about it.
