Monsanto Chemitron at Disneyland 1956

This fantastic painting was created for a 1956 souvenir brochure bestowed upon folks visiting the Monsanto Hall of Chemistry...and vividly illustrates the exhibit's monumental centerpiece: the "Chemitron."

 

The caption for this illustration reads:

 

"In the ceiling above the “Chemitron” spreads the arm of chemistry which transforms these eight basic materials into hundreds of chemicals and thousands of products we use and enjoy. In the hand is a ball of fire, symbol of the complex processes necessary for this transformation. Through the arm the arteries of industry the chemicals are formed into products that affect our everyday lives.”
