Magic Highway USA

There's something about the fifties America vision of the future that I find absolutely gorgeous. As well as the beautiful art direction - straight off a period pyrex martini shaker it's the boundless optimism that is infectious.

This excerpt from a 1958 Disneyland TV Show episode entitled Magic Highway USA is typical - spectacular colour layouts show their predictions for transportation across America and the world.



It's easy to laugh at some of the predictions, although to be fair I think the 'hit rate' is pretty good - but I'm just won over by a society that was embracing the future and technology with such visionary optimism.

I expect some interweb revisionist will tell me that it was bankrolled by big oil and Walt personally fired half the animators for having periods and the other half for being jewish. Oh well whatever happened to fantasy eh?
