Tomorrowland, November 1961

With all of the many photos I own that were taken from the Skyway, this image surprises me. I don't believe that I have another one like it! It looks like we've just left the Chalet, and have passed the Chicken of the Sea pirate ship. In the lower right corner is the tent-like roof of a Fantasyland eatery. Storybook Land is out of the frame to our left. And there's the fabulous Monorail! This photo wouldn't be much without it...I can almost hear the distinctive air horn.

There is a Richfield eagle, is that for the Fantasyland Autopia? You can also see the loading area for the Matterhorn Bobsleds, and we are about to pass through the mountain into Tomorrowland.

Look at all the benches for tired guests (or for places to eat if there are no tables left on a busy day)!

The umbrellas in the lower right hand of the image are the same ones I showed about a week ago. Also notice Monstro in the far left of the image. This was quite the lucky shot for the photographer with the Monorail in that position.

Great photo. Monstro the Whale is not in the shot, however. Believe that's the edge of the water on the Canal Boat ride.
