First Glimpse: Tomorrowland 1955

Tomorrowland 1955. The hope for the future. Disneyland's optimistic view inlcuded space travel, creative transportation systems, and the marvels of new chemical technology. Here, TWA's Rocket to the Moon stands high above it all, enticing guests with a trip to outer space. Corporate exhibits showcase the wonders of modern science and its application for life at home. (Sounds like Innoventions, doesn't it?) Amazing that the basic design of Tomorrowland stays the same, decade after decade after decade...
