Scholarly Saturdays: Encyclopaedia Britannica & Tomorrowland, Pt. 2

Now we start getting into the good stuff! Yup, vintage Tomorrowland at its best. Susie and Bobby have rejoined us and are ready to take us through the Monsanto Hall of Chemistry.

I never cared much for Chemistry, but when it’s Disney-fied, ANYBODY would enjoy it! Over at the Kaiser Hall of Aluminum, you can marvel at this way-crazy space suit:

And in case you’ve had too many Pepsis, the Bathroom of Tomorrow may be just what you need!

A trip to the Dairy of tomorrow perhaps? Unfortunately the flying milkman never happened.

Our last two shots show the movie sets from 20k that were repurposed as a Tomorrowland attraction. Sure, it was a move of economy, but who’s too cool to ignore—let’s explore!

More Tomorrowland fun next Saturday! See more Encyclopaedia Britannica photos at my website.

In retrospect, Tomorrowland bums me out...more like Globalwarming Land and the Monsanto Hall of Carcinogens. I guess ignorance really was bliss in the 50's.

The flying milk man is so cool, so are the cows in their Plexiglas stalls!

The Bathroom of Tomorrow and the House of Bras seem fairly unbelievable today...

The Crane Bathroom shot is very similar to the photo that I posted on my blog a long time ago (only this one doesn't have a blinding flash reflection!).

Notice the "K4" on the aluminum space suite. This was reflected on the suite worn by the walkaround space man. Wasn't K4 an aluminum formula thing?

Notice the "K4" on the aluminum space suit. That was the same on the walk around character space man. Wasn't that a aluminum formula thing?
