1948 School Textbook about Disney Studio

About Los Angeles is a 1948 childrens text book published by D.C. Heath and Company, which was distributed mainly to Southern California public schools. The illustrations are by Edna Potter. In one chapter, Jack and Carol (the protagonists) visit The Walt Disney Studio in Burbank. It’s simplistic, but essentially accurate. Note the picture of Ward Kimball on page 200, and also note that on page 199 it says:

“…new ideas for Disney cartoons were usually suggested by the artists. They drew the story in pictures.”
