The Spica

I could make a very bad pun about "spica my language," but instead, I will refrain and show this glorious shot of the Spica jet from the Disneyland Astrojet attraction, circa Spring 1957. The slide was labeled Mary Ellen and M.M.; could the shy brunette lady be Marilyn Monroe in disguise? I'll let you decide.

More vintage and current Astrojet/Astro Orbiter photos at my main website.

Wonderful pic. Takes me back. Don't think that's Marilyn though.
Just a hunch, but if it is, great make-up job.

Those sure were dapper days back then.
