Yet more pix from my stash of Instamatic negatives....
I'll start out with two photos taken from the parking lot (now DCA and Downtown Disney) where "Mr. X" captured images of the Monorail as it passed by in the distance. The cars aren't quite as much fun to look at as they were in the 1950's, but I kind of like the sporty blue model near the center of the picture.
Remember, we are parked in lot "C". That's C for Cinderella. Everyone inside the Monorail had, for the duration of the trip, higher IQs. Maybe even telepathic abilities. But when they disembarked, they became ordinary schmoes like the rest of us.
This one isn't super exciting, but it is an unusual view, taken from the Hub. Right where the "Partners" statue is today. Mr. X noticed that this was a Kodak Picture Spot, and he obediently snapped a photo. You can see the construction walls (in various shades of pink) blocking the entrance to Tomorrowland as it is transformed into the NEW Tomorrowland.
