TWA Rocket to the Moon Ride Tomorrowland

This image is a very nice birds eye view from the newly opened Skyway from Tomorrowland to Fantasyland. Image shows the iconic TWA Rocket to the Moon in front of the actual theater where the Rocket to the Moon ride was experienced by Disneyland guests. In the foreground can be seen some of the futuristic seating and great parabolic umbrellas and sun shades along with the futuristic lighting. Great mid-century coloration on the planters as well. On the left hand side can be seen the spinning Astro Orbitor. Image is from a Kodachrome slide.

Photo is reversed. The road behind looked wrong and the AWT on the ride side of the ride building confirms it.

I wonder if anyone reads comments from posts this old? I hope so!
