Christmas Decorations Monsanto Hall of Chemistry 1956

From the same night as the Christmas Bowl photograph is this shot showing the Monsanto Hall of Chemistry lit up for the Holiday season. I love the decorations especially the Santa Claus as well as the Reindeer. And the atomic symbol on the building lit up in blue light is an amazing design piece. The irregular shapes of the decorations really do fit into Tomorrowland at this time period. These images are what collectors like myself dream of...images of Disneyland that do not exist any where else.

For some more vintage Holiday images around Disneyland, check out Yesterland's holiday page. I especially like the Monsanto House of the Future wrapped in the bright red bow!

Stick around for a shot of the Circarama at night with New Year decorations from the same series!

Wow, what a wonderful night shot! Really fantastic with the Christmas decorations, and you even get a glimpse inside this rarely-photographed attraction. Thanks!
