Wowee kazowee, it has been nearly a year since my last POSTERAMA installment. Today I am presenting two posters from my collection. Have I mentioned that I love Disneyland attraction posters?? ("Only about a zillion times, Major Pepperidge!")
First up is this very nice Rocket Jets poster. The Rocket Jets replaced the old Astro Jets when "New Tomorrowland" opened in 1967 - and didn't they look amazing way up on top of the Peoplemover load platform! The style is similar to the Peoplemover poster, I suspect it was designed by the same artist. I love that logo, with the upward-pointing arrow! So 1960's. The poster isn't especially rare, but I am mighty happy to have it.
Back in 1957 (a full decade before the Rocket Jets), a poster was made for the brand-new Viewliner. This one is relatively scarce, which is why I had to settle for this example that is not in the greatest condition But what are a few wrinkles and edge tears? I love that the li'l Viewliner is depicted as it passed above the Motor Boat Cruise - another gone-but-not-forgotten attraction.
