Subs and More, September 1963

Three nice views of Tomorrowland from September 1963, well actually two nice views from Tomorrowland and one nice view from Fantasyland. First up is the sub Skipjack cruising in front of Monorail Yellow. The 1960s Tomorrowland really was a World on the Move!

Next up is another view of the Submarine Lagoon with Monorail Blue coming in, Skyway buckets passing overhead and the Douglas Rocket to the Moon ready for lift off.

The last view is one usually seen from the Tomorrowland side of the Matterhorn, but this is taken from the Fantasyland side. Check out the lovely Alice in Wonderland attraction poster at the entrance to the ride.

Two undeniable truths in 'Disneyland" life are:
1) Submarines are meant to be Gray
2) Skyway buckets are meant to be round.
A statement of fact: Monorails, no matter the color are just plain cool.

Good pictures all.

You can make out the word "Fantasyland" at the bottom of the Alice poster, even though (supposedly) the versions without that word were made for the display above the attraction (since it wouldn't be visible from most angles). Or so I'm told.
