Truman Weighs In

Former President Harry Truman visited Disneyland on November 2, 1957. The press was on hand to capture this shot of him weighing himself on the scale at the Rocket to the Moon attraction in Tomorrowland. Here's the accompanying publicity blurb:

11/6/57 - ANAHEIM, CALIF.: Harry S. Truman, on a visit to Disneyland 11/2, keeps up with the times as he gets the data on what he would weigh on the moon. The fun house scale gives "your weight on the moon."

WOW!!! What a great shot. I love photos of American presidents visiting Disneyland, but this one is extra special. It contains a detail about Disneyland that I've never seen before or knew about, "Your Weight on THE MOON" scales. That's the joy of being a Disneyland geek. You discover something new all the time. Thanks, Dave.

He's not standing on it yet. The needle still reads "0."

The "fun house?"
