Clock of the World

Good old Kodachrome, I love the way that legendary film stock preserved rich, saturated colors so that photos look like they could have been taken yesterday (only better). Like this picture, for instance. Transforming it to a jpeg causes some of the color information to be lost, the actual slide looks even better.


There's the familiar Clock of the World, surrounded by 50 flagpoles (sans flags), one for each state of the union. In the old days, the flags were in a different location, and formed a star when seen from above...obviously a signal to the space aliens who observe us and probe those unlucky few.

The Plastic House of the Future is there, too. In the background are several spectacular attraction posters, including the super-rare Red Wagon Inn poster and the Frontierland "tri-level" poster featuring the Stage Coach, the Mine Train, and the "Mule Pack Ride". I want that one!

Oh wait, no it's not, I'm upside down.

Hey, there’s an orange tree in that shot. No doubt one of the original inhabitants!
