Todd and I wanted to wish all of our faithful DHI readers an “unsurpassed” (and happy) Valentine’s day. We could think of no better way to do this, but through Disney history (our namesake, you know) and the most famous Disney couple we could think of. This wonderful art was created for a very popular promotion done in 1939 and 1940 for Standard Oil of California (a lengthier essay on this, with a plethora of never-before-seen images, is scheduled for a future DHI post). The Disney characters were featured up and down the west coast on billboards, signs, taxi hubcaps, maps, publications, and so much more. This particular art was for a sizable poster (4′ x 8′-ish) and meant for display at Standard Service Stations. It is dated September 1939. Enjoy!
