Tomorrowland, July 1958

There's only one image today, but it's a nice one at least! I'm not entirely sure if this photo was taken from the Skyway or from Snow Mountain (my guess is the latter). As you can see, there's the salmon-colored Viewliner curving around the track. It was the fastest li'l train in the world! Don't believe me? Go find one that was faster. No, I insist! I'll wait...

Anyway, some other photographer might have been lucky if he was standing in just the right place, he would have gotten a nice shot of the Viewliner and the Disneyland Railroad running side by side.

Meanwhile, there is the Midget Autopia, the Junior Autopia, and the Invisible Autopia (rarely photographed!).

(By the way, check out the smog!!)


For the sake of comparison, you might want to take a gander at this beauty recently posted over at Daveland!

Love, love, love this photo! Even the Motor Boat Cruise dock is visible!

It's curious they'd style the monorail after the viewliner. But I like it! Guess they did too. :)

Those Autopiaries are cute.

And where is that anyway? Surely that's not Anaheim... hehe

Great view of a changed scene, thanks Major!

Smog? What are you talking about? It's always smog-green in Anaheim!
