Scholarly Saturdays: Encyclopaedia Britannica & Tomorrowland, Pt. 1
For the handful that spoke out, I listened! We are beginning our journey through 1950’s Tomorrowland, courtesy of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Again, apologies for the spotty image quality, but as before, the rarity of some of these pictures will hopefully make up for that. Reading the description in frame 2 makes one wonder why the Imagineers can’t sit down and come up with a creative vision of the future 30 years from now, restoring Tomorrowland to what it initially promised.
And here is the entrance to Tomorrowland, back when it had a little space and much more of a welcoming feel.
The last two shots feature The Clock of the World. One of my intelligent (and more patient!) readers out there could probably figure out the exact date and time these shots were taken.
Come back next Saturday for more Tomorrowland! See more Encyclopaedia Britannica photos at my website.
