Picture includes Wally Boag, Betty Taylor, Fulton Burley and three of the can-can girls.

Copy to the left says, 

"Meet the Happiest Pair in Frontierland. As the hosts at Fritos Casa De Fritos and Pepsi~Cola's Golden Horseshoe Revue, the Frito Kid and Pecos Bill are "friendly" rivals

in Frontierland at Disneyland. But when the sun sets in the west and friends drop by for some old fashioned hospitality, you'll always find the happiest pair in Frontierland... or any old place. What's there to argue about - even for friendly rivals - when there's plenty of ice cold , sparkling Pepsi~Cola and delicious crispy Fritos Corn Chips. So if you want to make friends quickly, make sure there's plenty of Fritos and Pepsi~cola around your house. That way, whenever folks drop by, they'll never get the drop on you!"

Don't really know who miss Lillie Bell Lu is, but we have the lovely La Belle Sisters.

I guess the balcony is closed!

Sadly the doors are closed and not swinging and the date at the top of the building is incorrect. It should say 1871.

A different version of the reservation card. [It almost looks like it was used for a Corporate party type reservation] Does this look familiar to anyone?

Late 1950's Golden Horseshoe waitress, Judi Conroy remembers food service in the early days~

"We has about 20 minutes after the herds thundered in and sat down, to take their orders for sandwiches, chips, and Pepsi. We didn't write anything down, but took as many tables as we could remember. We had round trays that would hold over a dozen (somehow, I seem to remember 18) large Pepsi's in paper cups. They were so precarious to take back to the customers. Just one time, I dumped the whole thing down the front of me. Our uniforms were kind of gold with black and white striped skirts, and when you leaned over a good deal of bust was shown. We got fabulous tips and at that time, I think we were making $1.25 an hour. The bartenders were pretty cute. I loved going back to the break room when the can-can girls were between shows and their dresses were to die for. We always joked around with Wally Boag, Don Novis and Betty Taylor. Even though I saw the show over and over, I never tired of the routine."

Musicians and male cast members at the Golden Horseshoe Saloon wore tight vests over stripped shirts that have garter-ed sleeves.

The waitresses usually wore saloon girl petty coats and skirts with a form fitting bodices and lace trim. 

This reservation card was typical of how  most people show the Golden Horseshoe Revue.

Two different Golden Horseshoe Revue reservation cards.

When the Golden Horseshoe Revue started in 1955, it required a reservation. The building was closed in between shows, cleaned and a new audience was ushered in for their meal. This practice stopped around 2004 and now audience to the current show may come in at anytime to order food.

A plastic Golden Horseshoe used to serve delicious Pepsi product. The boots given to Annual Passholder during the 2013 Revival Tribute to the Golden Horseshoe Saloon were clear plastic and filled with corn chips instead of Pepsi~Cola.

The original Revue sign that hung out front above the swinging doors of the Golden Horseshoe Saloon.

The swinging doors were removed in the early 2000's due to accidents of people hitting each other going in or out.

Whats' best about this menu is the prices!

A .50 cent large Pepsi, $2.95 for a tasty sandwich and .35 cents for chips and .45 cents for a yummy brownie.

Based on the prices, I'm going to say mid 1960's.
