I have some extra-good ones for you today; not only are they from 1955, but they feature some beautiful shots of TOMORROWLAND!
Thanks to the martini-shaker Clock of the World we can see that it is 4:14 in the afternoon; being November, night fell very early, which explains the long shadows and rosy-hued sunshine. Look at all those nautical flags; they don't make much sense in the world of future, but they look good anyway.
Zooming in a bit, you can see that the boy with the blue jacket in the foreground is wearing one of those souvenir "Indian" headband (with feather) from the Carnation Refreshment Corner (see a girl wearing one HERE). Man, I love the colors in this picture.
Here's a second beauty; the Moonliner looks fantastic - this is before it was pitted by thousands of micrometeorites and alien death ray blasts. The red Autopia car was Walt's personal vehicle; it looks like you could actually sit in it to have your photo taken. Cool! And while they are hard to read in this jpeg, there are neat signs for the Rocket to the Moon, the American Dairy Association, and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
