Classic Tomorrowland, 1964

We've seen lots of photos of the Submarine lagoon and the surrounding Tomorrowland attractions, but I still think this photo is pretty nice. It manages to capture some of that "gee whiz" feeling that I used to experience as a kid (before I became a jaded, heartless SOB). There's plenty going on here, with the "George Washington" cruising past us in the foreground, while the Monorail glides into the Tomorrowland station. And of course there's the ubiquitous Skyway. That's right, I said ubiquitous!

The only way this photo could be any better is if there were mermaids.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm in the mood to wear my silver lamé jumpsuit. But that's another story.

Wow silver lame and ubiquitous all in one post. You are on quite a roll!

Is it true that the skyway ride was eliminated from the park because of a constant problem with 'spitters' and/or beverage droppers? It's easy to imagine a bunch of no-goodniks using the gondola as their own bomber planes; pouring sugary drinkables (or spitting) onto the heads of the hapless pedestrians below.

Do you ever answer questions? I asked a few in my comment on your one with the psychedelic car from Universal Studios 1868. I gave you my e-mail address in it (in my comment). I hope that wasn't a mistake.
I really love your blog - You have the greatest old photos.
