Disneyland Time Capsule: August 1958, Pt. 2

There was a time when Disneyland was Autopia CRAZY! Tomorrowland Autopia, Midget Autopia, Junior is a view of some of the tracks. Shot #2 features the Tomorrowland Skyway Station AND the Autopia, as well as the Astrojets. I have included a closeup of the booth for the nosey Disneyland geeks.

More Richfield Autopia: you can practically smell the gas!

Sadly, this Tomorrowland Viewliner shot is a little blurry. It really does look like a toy; I can see why Walt wanted to upgrade it with the larger and sleeker Monorail.

See more vintage & current Tomorrowland. photos at my regular website.

“Sleeping Beauty,” the Platinum Edition, is about to hit the streets, and boy is it a beauty (pun intended)! The section of extras on the Disneyland Sleeping Beauty Castle Diorama is not to miss.

Fantastic bunch of photos! Great color, all picturing the classic Tomorrowland.

Great pics Dave. A Viewliner blurred is still a Viewliner. Awesome.

WOW, what is that booth for? Tickets I would guess, but is it for a specific attraction or just for the "land"? Thanks Dave!

Tim - I would guess an Autopia Ticket Booth. Anyone?
