    I debated wearing a tie but none of them ended up looking quite right. I agree that a knitted tie would have been great but I don't own one yet.

    Strange that you should say that, because Disneyland, back in the early 1970s, was planning an entire new Land, called Discovery Bay, which today we would consider Steampunk.

    Like Steampunk, Discovery Bay was largely inspired by the writings of Jules Verne.

    Richard.........off topic, but a good time to ask you. Was the planned location for Discovery Bay, where the current Stars Wars area is? Also, is the top image of the framed print you told me about at Pleasanton, last year? The one you purchased at the Company Store.

    Yes in the Disney Gallery (above Pirates of the Caribbean) they had a fantastic show The Disneyland That Never Was.

    In it was the original painting by Tony Baxter of Discovery Bay, which as you see was painted in 1974.

    They had nice big prints for sale, limited edition, signed and dated by Tony. With my employee discount the print was only around $100.

    Had Discovery Bay been built there would have been a natural gathering-place for our nascent Steampunk gatherings (which, like our Dapper Days, are unofficial grassroots events).

    About the location of Discovery Bay, it was slated to be built in the area where they eventually built Thunder Mountain Railroad. (Disney decided they needed another roller coaster.)
