Tomorrowland, March 1961

The gleaming Rocket to the Moon seems to draw guests like a giant magnet. To the left would have been the Art of Animation exhibit, and to the right the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea walk-thru. But you can't see them here! Note that at this time, the rocket lacks the TWA logo, as sponsorship had ended.

Here's an oddly-composed photo of the Autopia, with a forest of miniature street lights to keep the drivers extra safe on the freeway of tomorrow.

I really dig that first photo. Is that man carrying a big old camera bag that possibly holds a Super 8 movie camera????? Wouldn't you like to see those films?
