Today I have two extra nice photos from 1959! We'll start with this cool closeup of the Monsanto House of the Future. The composition is pretty nice, with the zig-zag walkway in the foreground, along with the little waterfalls and lovely landscaping.
As I have said before, this house was small, but I'd bet that many people would be thrilled to own such a home!
The plastic house was occasionally redecorated to keep the interior as fashionable as possible, and I am assuming that this photo was taken during one of those remodels. Note the ladders (at least two), along with those boxes at the top of the stairs.
Sleeping Beauty Castle made for an interesting juxtaposition with the futuristic house; this is kind of a neat angle, with the moat flowing past us, and all of the beautiful bushes and trees. I noticed that the lights along the moat are pointed down toward the water, which probably resulted in lovely reflections on the smooth white walls of the Monsanto house at night!
