(Disneyland, 1956-1961) An extremely rare and unusual hand-silkscreened poster for the "Astrojets" attraction at Disneyland. Astrojets opened in 1956 in Tomorrowland, and this original Bjorn Aronson designed poster is the same one that was made for the opening of the attraction. However, in 1961, American Air Lines came out with an “Astrojet” Airliner and it is thought that Disney removed the name from its signage at that time. Rather than make an entirely new poster, the word “Astrojet” has been silkscreened over and replaced with the word “Jet”. The “Astrojet” lettering can still be faintly seen when looking closely at the front and reverse of the poster. An extremely rare variant of an already extremely rare poster, this is the only the second example we have ever seen. Measures 54”x36”. In very good to fine condition.
