Douglas Rocket to the Moon

The Rocket to the Moon is looking fine in these two Douglas-era photos. The vapor escaping from the vents of the rocket indicates the tremendous power that is barely contained in this spacecraft! I've always loved the retractable legs and the "nose up" landing stance that this rocket had...very reminiscent of many 50's space movies (especially "Destination Moon").

Tomorrowland is a hive of activity in this photo...

As I look at all of the guests enjoying themselves, I can't help but wonder if they had any clue that 45+ years down the road there would be goofs like us that pour over these photos, loving every minute detail?

And 45+ years from now will someone be pouring over my photographs of the Park???
