DDW Pic 13. Original Abraham Lincoln

Original Abraham Lincoln
This picture was taken in January of this year at the Walt Disney: One Man's Dream pavilion in Hollywood Studios. It is the original Abraham Lincoln audio-animatronic figure that debuted at the 1964 New York World's Fair. At the fair, this amazing and revolutionary "robot" was the star of Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, which was located in the Illinois pavilion. It was so lifelike that many people thought it was a human actor. A similar figure can be seen today in The Hall of Presidents over in the Liberty Square section of the Magic Kingdom.
