Today is a bittersweet day; not only are these the last two amazing photos featuring the construction of the "New Tomorrowland", they are also the last of the Instamatic images that were generously given to me by my friend "Mr. X" years ago. There were nearly 300 views in total! And I think you'll agree that some of them were quite nice. I may do a "greatest hits" post (or more than one).
On to today's pictures; take a look at this wonderful photo (taken from the Skyway?) looking down on what appears to be some very frantic activity. There's a lot more steel here than in other places - not entirely sure why, when standard wood framing is also used judiciously. Workmen can be seen all over the place, too. Notice the Disneyland Hotel in the distance, as well as the red leaves on the Swiss Family Treehouse.
I'm wondering what the deal is with those two ladders on the Peoplemover beamway. Any ideas? I'm sure it's all very safe!
Here's a closer view, presumably taken on the same day (though maybe not). It's hard to believe that this tangle of wood and metal would eventually result in the clean, pleasing buildings that so many of us remember fondly!
Even though these are the last of the Instamatics, I still have lots more from Mr. X coming up!
