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.
