Vintage Disneyland Tomorrowland Postcards

Flickr is a great resource for Disney postcards. You can take a virtual tour now just by geography, but also through time, just by browsing collections. This morning I went to Disneyland’s Tomorrowland of Yesteryear.

    Oh, also, I love the photo of the Rocket Jets and the People Mover.

    It cracks me up when I read Disneyland forums and participants bemoan the loss of the People Mover because on the surface the idea of a public transportation ride sounds boring. However, those pods added a lot of movement and color to Tomorrowland.

    The Rocket Jets were a lot more exciting than the Astro Orbiter: you had to take an elevator to get to the ride and you were given a bird’s eye view of the park.

  2. Zelig, that is a great site and a staple of my newsreader.

    I loved the People Mover and wish they would bring it back. Did you ever ride the Rocket Rods? Such a waste.

    Well at least WDW still has a peoplemover going and it is my favorite way to relax at the park.

    Great postcards.
    These remind me of Expo 67 in my home town and the Man And His World exhibits.
    They also had a functional monorail. Such transports are so very exactly the right pace to be moved around and take in the day.

    Indeed Vic, between Monsanto’s mad-scientist developments in our day and age and the Logan’s Run hand crystal hovering over passers-by, back then, I get a shivering vibe that they have an ongoing Master Plan involving Carousel at some point.
