Disneyland in 1956

The NAMM show starts today at the Anaheim Convention Center in Southern California.

The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) is a non-profit that was founded in 1901.

Anaheim was founded in 1857 by German immigrants as the Anaheim Colony. The heim (home) by the Santa Ana river. By 1870 the area had “scores of vineyards” and 47 wineries. A grape disease in the 1880s forced farmers to switch to orange growing, which lasted until the mid 1950s. Which is also when Disneyland opened.

Ninety years ago, in 1928, Disney released its first major film with fully synchronized sound; Steamboat Willie. Look how far we have come?
