Spaceman at Tomorrowland circa 1967

Here's a photo from 1967 or so with the Tomorrowland Spaceman (click on it for a larger view). Tomorrwland used to have this guy walking around as well as jet pack demonstrations. This particular spaceman looks like the same fellow ("cast member") as in a similar picture at the Yesterland site. The spaceman outfit looks a bit different between the two pictures. The one at Yesterland has a lot more ruffles -- in the arms and legs whereas here there are only the ruffles on the neck.

Here one thing to note is the PeopleMover in the background which dates the picture to a time after that ride was put in.

Blond Snow White in Early Concept Sketch

Above is a close up of a blond-haired sleeping Snow White from the Dwarf's Arrive Home panel of the exhibit (Story sketch with blond Snow White: “Why it’s a girl”). I know these photos aren't the best, so I will add another below and then a wider larger image of the entire story sketch showing the dwarfs surrounding her as she sleeps after they've discovered her in their cottage.

Snow White as a curly-headed blond. That's a concept.

Click on the images to see the full sized image and feel free to save it if you wish.
