Topic: Best coverage of TL:67 I've ever seen:

Sun 3/3/2013 3:54p
I stumbled on to a 3 part series of the 1967 Tomorrowland. I saw pictures I've never seen before - like the "Act 6" escalator to Progress City on CoP. And now have a better understanding of the layout of the 2nd floor.

Part 1:

Part 2:

Part 3:

Some images repeat.

Overall ..... A nice compilation on the story of TL:67

And this is unrelated ... but another thing I stumbled on ... Someone's maps of various "Disneylands" (this link to a Tomorrowland).....

But what you gotta do .. is click on to other over-head maps ... This guy has some pretty interesting concepts!

Some I would NEVER want in Disneyland .. but fun to look at.

speaking of vintage shots of Disneyland ... I discovered someone's flykr page ... HUNDREDS of cool vintage stuff. Too much!!

This is totally cool -

A rare shot when the Viewliner was under construction.....

This has to be the best pic I've ever seen of the original circle-vision auditorium when it was known as "Circarama" .... with the latest American Motors vehicles for 1955!

The dark gray clouds above ... provide a dramatic backdrop ... to the "Bright" Tomorrowland of the mid 1950s:

oc_dean, you just made my day!

There's tons of great stuff here, thank you very much for sharing it with us.

I'm also fascinated by the photos of the long lost "Scene 5" segment where the audience came up on stage and rode the speedramp to the upper level displays. Amazing.

Those are some great COP photos! I don't think I've seen any interior shots from the World's Fair days, so it was great to check all those things out, in addition to seeing the upper level diagram at DL. The article said that they didn't know what the extra 2nd floor space was used for, but I've always heard that it was a GE lounge. Or am I confusing it with something else (maybe from Epcot)?

And now this whole thing has me searching for information on Meet the World. Despite running for nearly 20 years, there's hardly any information of substance out there (at least in English)

>>but I've always heard that it was a GE lounge.<<

It was.

At about the five-minute mark in the second link from post number one, there's a very interesting site. The peoplemover, seemingly complete with guests, gliding past an in tact house of the future (!). I'd always thought that that had been demolished before the new tomorrowland opened. Perhaps this film was taken just before the official opening for the purposes of this promo film?
