All of the remaining Instamatics from my friend "Mr. X" are photos showing the construction of the "New Tomorrowland". 24 of them! Which is pretty cool; it will be a nice sendoff for this incredible collection of photos that I have been sharing for years (literally). I shared one of them two years ago, you'll see it at this post.
Let's start with this photo, taken from the Disneyland Railroad; I am a bit discombobulated, but the Matterhorn is pretty far away, so we must be close to Tomorrowland Station. Maybe. In the foreground is the Truck of Tomorrow, along with some mysterious wooden sheds and 2 X 4's. For you fans of dirt, today is your lucky day. I love that Mr. X caught the Yellow Monorail as it came swooping by.
This was probably taken before the first photo, as it looks like we might be more in Fantasyland at this point - is that the Richfield Eagle from the Fantasyland Autopia to our extreme right? In any case... more dirt, and more Yellow Monorail!
