Tomorrowland, by golly

Here's a magnificent view of Tomorrowland, with the TWA Rocket to the Moon looking very impressive. Notice the wind sock next to the Flight Circle...it says "Wenmac". Wenmac was a maker of gas-powered remote-controlled planes, cars, and boats. One site calls them "plastic, cheap, and fun", so perhaps they weren't the highest quality available! Anyway, I'd always wondered why the Flight Circle had the "Wenmac" name attached to it and finally looked it up on the internets!!

In this "world of Tomorrow", most people have been turned into soylent green. The lonely souls seen in this photo were rejected because their flesh was deemed to be too radioactive. So now they wander the avenues in search of a mate in order to repopulate the world with mutant offspring. The woman in the blue skirt has her eyes on us, head for ze hills!

Looks like Tomorrowland has gotten some pretty heavy foot traffic in this great early view.
