This apx 7.5 x 10.5 copy of a Disneyland's Flying Saucer Layout Attraction poster is a vintage style design Original signature of Designer of the Autopia Car disney Legend BOB GURR. Bob Gurr & I are friends. (Autopia Car Photo)I also published Bob Gurr's book.... "Design Just For Fun" written by Bob Gurr Book.(Ape Pen Publishing) I also just finished a documentary on Disney Legend Bob Gurr; Turning Dreams Into Reality. I personally know Bob Gurr, and each poster is signed By Bob Gurr. . Bob has developed more than 200 designs for attractions ranging from Autopia and Matterhorn Bobsleds to the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Monorails, and more.Born in Los Angeles on October 25, 1931, young Bob was fascinated with tools, mechanical devices, and cars. He often crawled through a hole in the fence of nearby Grand Central Air Terminal in Glendale to sneak into the cockpits of idle transport airplanes, while at school he decorated his test papers with sketches of automobiles.Later, he attended Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles on a General Motors scholarship, where he studied industrial design. Upon graduation in 1952, he was hired by Ford Motor Company, but soon purchased a rubber stamp marked “R.H. Gurr Industrial Design” and went into business for himself.Soon after, WED Enterprises, today known as Walt Disney Imagineering, hired Bob to consult on the design of miniature cars for Autopia. Walt Disney was so impressed with Bob’s knowledge and skill that he invited him to join the Imagineering family, which then was solely dedicated to the design and construction of Disneyland.Over the next nearly four decades, Bob worked transportation magic developing the memorable Flying Saucers attraction in Tomorrowland, the antique cars and double-decker buses of Main Street, U.S.A., Ford Motor Company’s Magic Skyway, which premiered at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair,Autopia Cars, Matterhorn Bob Sleds, Omnimover's, and more. Bob also helped design the mechanical workings of Disney’s first Audio-Animatronics® human figure, Abraham Lincoln, featured in Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. Thank you for looking Ape Pen Publishing
