Disneyland Time Capsule: August 1958, Pt. 2



There was a time when Disneyland was Autopia CRAZY! Tomorrowland Autopia, Midget Autopia, Junior Autopia...here is a view of some of the tracks. Shot #2 features the Tomorrowland Skyway Station AND the Autopia, as well as the Astrojets. I have included a closeup of the booth for the nosey Disneyland geeks.





More Richfield Autopia: you can practically smell the gas!



Sadly, this Tomorrowland Viewliner shot is a little blurry. It really does look like a toy; I can see why Walt wanted to upgrade it with the larger and sleeker Monorail.



See more vintage & current Tomorrowland. photos at my regular website.



“Sleeping Beauty,” the Platinum Edition, is about to hit the streets, and boy is it a beauty (pun intended)! The section of extras on the Disneyland Sleeping Beauty Castle Diorama is not to miss. Pick it up on Blu-ray at Amazon.com as well as regular DVD at Amazon.com.

Great pics Dave. A Viewliner blurred is still a Viewliner. Awesome.

WOW, what is that booth for? Tickets I would guess, but is it for a specific attraction or just for the "land"? Thanks Dave!

Tim - I would guess an Autopia Ticket Booth. Anyone?
