House of the Future from Skyway

Among the sights that we see as we "float" on the Skyway from Tomorrowland to Fantasyland is Monsanto's House of the Future. This slide is undated, but (judging from the other slides in the lot) I think it is from 1958. There is a pretty long line outside...lots of folks want a taste of the future!

Snow Hill (or is it Snow Mountain, or Holiday Hill?) is to the left, but not for long. The first of the Disney theme park mountains will be built soon. You can get a glimpse into the backstage area between Main Street and Tomorrowland. Those are some big warehouses...and I think I can see some of the Spanish tile from the old Administration building.

The plastic house was there for 10 years until its removal in 1967.
