Disneyland 1956, Pt. 3: Tomorrowland



You should be relieved to know that based upon today’s first photo from 1956, balloons ARE part of the future. You just know this poor guy is sweating his $%# off. The open-mouthed gal in photo 2 is either shocked at the man in the spacesuit or she has just found out what Tomorrowland is going to look like in 50 years.



For my Tomorrowland photos, visit my regular website, davelandweb.com/tomorrowland.

I have NEVER seen a photo of a balloon seller dressed as a spaceman. AWESOME picture!

The second photo is nice too, a very unusual angle

Oh man, I'm dying to run over and buy something at that Hobbyland/souvenir area!

Nice new site design.
And great shots as usual.

Thanks Tikimoose - figured it was time to bling things out a little. And ODF - you can probably find that stuff on ebay...for a small fortune of course.

Dave- these shots are outstanding. I love the drinking fountain in the second photo. It is just kind of sitting there with just a pipe and a round bowl. I did not know the future was going to minimilast with such fixtures!
