Autopia & Matterhorn 1962

Today I've got two slightly faded images to share with you from 1962. First up is this shot of the Autopia; this kid is actually driving so fast that he is in danger of slipping into another dimension. By '62 the landscaping had matured, no longer a tapestry of dirt and weeds. In fact it is a pretty convincing replica of some stretches of real Southern California highways.

This "worm's eye view" of the Matterhorn makes this man-made mountain look even more massive!
