I love finding information on the area that would become the Disneyland Hotel prior to any building there or at initial building/construction. As most are aware, the Disneyland Hotel was built on orange groves as evident in the pictures below. I wonder what the addressing schemes were prior to Disney on West Street. The Hotel's original mailing address was 1441 S. West Street but I would love to know the mailing address for the primary residence (pictured below) before the Hotel's construction. This would help to find any previous owner information, building permits, records and general history on the property.

First picture is from late 1953 and shows the former residential though rural home on what would become the Disneyland Hotel:

Next, the area at the time of Disneyland's initial construction.

And now, a close-up of the residence on the Hotel property:

Another early Disneyland construction overhead followed by a close-up of the Hotel property:

And lastly, a shot of the initial construction of the Disneyland Hotel. The original Ranch House on the property (upper right of picture) would serve as the interim Little Gourmet Restaurant until the Gourmet was completed in early 1956:

Very Nice, I have memories of going to Disneyland in the 50's, driving through orange orchards to get there.
