Astro Jets, June 1958


Wow, I sure love this photo (from the same lot as yesterday's Alice In Wonderland pic)....there's something about the saturated colors and the blurred Astro Jets as they approached warp speed! I'll bet they looked extra-stunning at night with their cyclopean headlight shining. I also like how they dressed up the relatively bland Tomorrowland buildings with pennants and applied colorful abstract graphic shapes in the windows. It looks like Matisse got in there and decided to brighten things up. Maybe someday Matterhorn1959 will find some photos showing the fronts of these buildings in all of their glory?

Incidentally, if you want something to seem futuristic, add the "Astro" prefix to it. Startle your friends, annoy your enemies. Try it and see, it works every time!
