ROGER E. BROGGIE WINDOW DEDICATED TODAY

ROGER E. BROGGIE WINDOW DEDICATED TODAY
Second and third story windows in small town store buildings across America, often reveal the names and professions of the men and women who form the backbone of their community. Such windows still grace the little town of Marceline, Missouri where Walt Disney lived as a boy. The great animator once remarked, "To tell the truth, more things of importance happened to me in Marceline than have happened since - or are likely to in the future" 
It should then be no surprise that "Main Street USA" forms the entrance way to the Disney theme parks, and that proprietors' windows are the greatest tribute to those who made Walt Disney's dream one of the world's greatest places of enjoyment.
Walt Disney believed that having one's name and business listed on a window on Main Street, was a great and genuinely American honor.
Today March 30, 2007, the San Fernando Valley's own Roger E. Broggie's career was enshrined in California's Disneyland - Main Street USA.
In gold lettering the Broggie Window bares the symbol of the Machine Works of the Disney Studio) and promises:
CAN DO
• Mechanical Wonders
• Live Steam Engines
• Magical Illusions
• Cameras
