(Disneyland, c.1973) A rare collection of (95+) reference photographs and (10) color transparencies from The Island at the Top of the World. These items were used by WED Imagineers in the development of the unrealized new land, Discovery Bay. Decades later, however, elements of the original designs were used for Disneyland Paris's Discoveryland. The reference archive consists of (75+) vintage gelatin silver 8"x10" single-weight glossy photos, comprising scene stills from the film, behind the scenes shots of the Hyperion filming miniatures, concept paintings, and Astragardian settings, (3) color 8"x10" mini lobby cards, (19) gelatin silver 3.5"x5" RC photos of concept art and sets, and (10) color and monochromatic 35mm Ektachrome transparencies in slide mounts depicting film scenes and locations. The vast majority of the photos retain WED ink stamps and/or notation on the reverse. This wonderful reference archive provides fascinating insight into the Imagineering design process and poses interesting questions about the land that could have been. The photos and slides are assembled in an 11.75"x11.25" binder and remain in generally very good condition with some waviness, handling, and minor edge wear.
