Clock of the World
It’s a feature of early Disneyland that I know very little of, but the Clock of the World has always been something that has fascinated me. One of the first things you would see as you entered Tomorrowland, it was a way cool “gadget” that made it possible to tell you what time it was in any part of the world. Unfortunately, it bit the dust during the “New Tomorrowland” project of 1966-67.
The plaque in front of the Clock of the World said “World Time by Timex, July 17, 1955.”
The multi-colored blue tiles at the base are way cool as well:
