Here's an oldie but a goodie, originally posted in 2007. What a wonderful (undated) shot of this corner of Tomorrowland! So clear and colorful, even on this hazy day. I'll never stop being amazed at the undeveloped state of the land that was adjacent to Disneyland. If you look closely, you can see a raised, striped railroad crossing gate (near the Space Bar sign).
Oh, those lucky ducks, riding the Skyway; the colors used on the buckets evolved over the years, and I love these then-fashionable hues.
I also wanted to zoom in on the load area for the Autopia; the girl with the red skirt is artfully framed by the Skyway tower.
There's a whole bunch of attraction posters, along with the queue for the Autopia and a bit of the Skyway ticket booth. I like the alternating orange and yellow colors of the food and drink dispensers (part of the Space Bar). Does anybody know if those were completely machine-operated? Or was it more like an Automat, with Oompa Loompas hidden behind the scenes?
Right near the Skyway stairs, you can see a wall with a bold black, yellow and white "hourglass" pattern...
... which, as you can see, was near the entrance to the rest rooms.
