Riding Down Main Street, U.S.A.

Riding Down Main Street, U.S.A.
(01110202 dp 79902-c)
This early postcard features one of the Main Street, U.S.A. vehicles, "a new-fandangled" fire engine.  It also highlights some of the nifty outfits of the early 70's.
The logo on the back has the 'Florida Flag,' added to distinguish Walt Disney World from the west coast Disneyland.  This series of postcards (01110000) was printed both with and without the 'Florida Flag.'
Based on the hand-written date of October 6, 1971, it appears that this card was purchased during the opening week of Walt Disney World.
Also note the pot-belly stove at the bottom of the card indicating this card was from Main Street, U.S.A. Each 'land' in the Magic Kingdom had its own icon.
