Aw yeah! Howsabout some classic Tomorrowland for your Friday? It's my favorite. The slides are undated, though my guess would be that they are from the very late 1960's.
Let's start with this awesome photo of the beautiful Mark III Monorail Red at its revamped station with the zig-zag roof line in Tomorrowland. As we all know, the Mark III Monorails debuted in 1968 (right, Chuck?!), and they were still sponsored by Alweg. Below the Monorail is the queue for the Submarine Voyage - I love that the sign still alludes to the fact that those gray subs were supposed to be nuclear powered.
If you could only ride one of these two attractions, which one would you choose?
You all know bands such as "Sunshine Balloon", "The New Establishment", "The Better Half", and "The Entertainment Committee" (to name but a few), but I'd like you to meet "The New Descendants" (they predated the punk band "The Descendants" by a decade or so). The fact that they had two gals on guitars plus the usual female singer is pretty awesome.
As always, the Rolly Crump stage is as perfect as can be.
I like their coral orange-pink jumpers and beribboned pigtails. And those colored translucent plastic panels are very cool as well.
