Clock of the World and Tomorrowland Signage
This image from approximately 1957/1958 shows the entrance to the original Tomorrowland and the iconic Clock of the World. I can't just stop there, though. You know I have to zoom in and pore over all the details.
Check out the outfits. By looking at this detailed area, we can tell it must have been a hot day. The one lady in the center is attempting to shield her head with the Sleeping Beauty Diorama Souvenir Booklet. The lady in the back appears to be wearing a black straw hat with flowers, similar to Mary Poppins. The little boy on the left in the Colonial Hat seems to be doing some kind of rope trick. I also enjoy perusing the signage, and seeing all of the attractions/sponsors/exhibits that are no more.
