Monorail, May 1960

Here's kind of an unusual view of the Monorail...possibly the photo was taken from the Disneyland & Santa Fe Railroad (or maybe even the Autopia? Let me know, experts!). There's that mysterious little bridge in the foreground, I can't even guess what it is for.

The Monorail looks so cool, streamlined and tomato-red. In the distance, Motor Boats "thrill" guests. I've always wondered, how could the Imagineers have made the boat ride more futuristic, or at least space-themed? Canal boats of Mars?

As far as I remember, the bridge goes over a dry-dock that was used to work on the submarines. The submarines could also be removed from the ride here.

I'd guess it's taken from the Autopia, although I'm not really certain.

Yup, that's the submarine's dry dock. Back side of Tomorrowland. The shot was taken from the Santa Fe Railroad. Nice shot!
