Walt Disney (1933)
photograph, 10" x 8"
This is an original black-and-white glossy photograph on single-weight paper of Walt Disney at the Mid-Winter Snow Carnival held at Lake Arrowhead, California, in January, 1933. He is seen pushing the large Mickey Mouse doll made by Charlotte Clark in a sled; later during the festival he awarded a smaller Mickey doll to Mildred Chanter, winner of the Mickey Mouse snowman building contest. The event was promoted through the Mickey Mouse Clubs that had been organized at theatres across the USA during the early-1930s. This photograph was likely distributed to a newspaper for publication, and a caption is handwritten in pencil on the back.
