Disneyland, September 1960: Tomorrowland
Today we have two more images from a batch of color-shifted September 1960 slides. Although I love the original 1959 red Monorail, there's something about the blue one that seems so much more sleek.
Here's a contemporary view of the Monorail at its Tomorrowland station, circa 2009. The brightly colored Nemo signage breaks the illusion that you might be visiting the future and boarding something that is high-tech.
In this vintage view, you can see both the Astrojets and the Moonliner/Rocket to the Moon attractions:

Today, the Astrojets have been dumped at the front of Tomorrowland's entrance and the Moonliner has been reduced (perhaps it went into the ATIS shrinking atomic machine?) into an advertising vehicle for Coke:
As the photo shows, perhaps there's a rainbow in Tomorrowland's future...or a furry Ewok at the very least.
