    Those pictures came from some Kodak Slides my grandfather purchased while at the park. I wouldn't be at all suprised to see them on ViewMaster as well.

    Without corporate sponsorship, Disneyland might never have gotten off the ground and survived its early years. Corporations provided much needed financing when banks wouldn't back "Walt's Folly." After that, the genie was out of the bottle, and Disney theme park attractions would forever be connected to corporate sponsors.

    As annoying as product placement is to some at DL, it is, was, and always will be a necessary evil.

    One of the few things I've never complained about at Disneyland or Disney World is the corporate sponsorship.

    I mean, welcome to the facts of life.

    I recently saw some pictures of 1956 DL. I'll try to get them to Darkbeer so he can post them on his website.
    Back then, everything was in black and white.

    Re: Retro pictures from Tomorrowland, late 60's / early 70's

    I never seen the Carousel of Progress. At least, I don't remember it. I only remeber that building as the "America Sings Building".

    So, was the Carousel of Progress a show, like America Sings. The audience seats in threater seats, then the stage rotates (or the audience rotates around the stage). Each part of the show is a different era in household technology. Is that what Carousel of Progress was? I didn't figure that out until I saw the pictures.

    Thanks for posting them.

    One could counter that most other parks don't have such blatent sponsorship.. yet don't have the resources of the monster company behind them NOR the attendence that disney has.

    Disney isn't the small animation studio it was 50 years ago

    Thanks for posting the pics, Oogie and thanks for cleaning them up, Athlonacon! Those are great for seeing more of what the park looked like back then.
    Warning: Portions of this attraction are intense and may not be appropriate for younger children.

    Actually, since COP came first, America Sings was like it.

    You are correct. In both shows the audience rotated around different scenes on a stationary stage. COP depicted the eras of the 1900's, 1920's, 1940's and 1960's with an emphasis on technological advances made possible by electricity.

    Re: Retro pictures from Tomorrowland, late 60's / early 70's

    The fact that these came from slides clears up the issue of the backwards Tomorrowland. It's VERY easy to put a slide into a scanner backwards (essentially upside-down) and when it's scanned in it looks like it's correct. I was wondering how Tomorrowland's entrance ended up backwards, I was almost questioning the quality of the photo lab technicians of the era, but this makes so much more sense now.
