The Corriganville Movie Ranch was opened to the general public in 1949. In 1953, expansion of the ranch and shows was accompanied by Larry Parson becoming one of the two official Corriganville Photographers. For a $1, you could have your picture taken with Ray "Crash" Corrigan. You would then receive an autographed 8x10 photo in the mail. Larry's negatives are the only ones known to survive. For reference, he made proof sheets of his negatives (a proof sheet is an actual sized photo of the negative, unenlarged). This book contains the proof sheets for 1953 which include Corrigan's posing with the visitors to his ranch. Other proof sheets from 1953, including the rodeo and stunt shows, will be featured in another book, as well as the other years during which Larry Parson was one of the photographers. The Corriganville Movie Ranch Pictorial Souvenir Book was sold at the world famous Corriganville Movie Ranch in Simi Valley, California. This is a near complete reprint of the original book -- only the centerfold map is missing.
