Yet another day in Tomorrowland, 1956. Originally, Tomorrowland was similar to a County Fair, with lots of exhibits from major brand names. One in particular was sponsored by Dutch Boy Paints. Previously, I had posted this dark photo that showed the interior of their exhibit, The Dutch Boy Paint Color Gallery; this 2nd photo is from the August 1956 batch and shows a clearer view of the color circles on the ceiling.
We also get 2 nice views of the Autopia; in the background of shot #1 we see the infamous cattle cars of the Disneyland Railroad.
In Autopia shot #2, there’s a glimpse of the Phantom Motor Boats, chugging around in their final summer appearance:
This shot taken from the Skyway provides a better idea of what the Phantom Boats looked, which was something right out of Batman! Holy Smokes! I wonder if the pink one inspired Mary Kay Cosmetics?
Come back tomorrow for the final post of this August 1956 series. See more vintage & current Tomorrowland photos at my website.
