One of the greatest things about doing this blog is being able to “meet” (or whatever the word is for the online equivalent) people who worked for the park and other Disneyland fanatics who are just as much into the history of the park as I am. One such person is CoxPilot. Having worked at the Flight Circle in Tomorrowland, he has been a fantastic resource for photos and information. He has willingly shared his memories and allowed me to post them to my site, for which I am extremely grateful. Here are 3 photos from his collection, starting off with an interior of the Upjohn Pharmacy on West Main Street, from November 1955. Picture 2 is from the 20K Exhibit that was in Tomorrowland, showing off some of the actual suits used in the movie.
Pic 3 is a little short on detail, but still a rarity: a pencil sketch of the Nautilus, from the same exhibit:
Many thanks to CoxPilot for making it possible to view these rare images. See more vintage Disneyland photos and read about CoxPilot’s park memories on my regular website.
