The Underside of Water
The Monsanto House of the Future is one of those quirky parts of Disneyland's past that has a number of fans and admirers. Over the years, Monsanto's reputation has been tarnished due to questionable environmental practices. Had this icon survived, it would most likely have become a PR nightmare for the Mouse! Today, the shiny white monstrosity can remain a nostalgic piece of lovable plastic.
Recently, I added a rare shot of the water feature underneath the house, circa March 1964, just three years before the house was hit by the wrecking ball. Literally.
Amazing how nature and plastics can live side by side, isn't it?
Replaced by a number of different "attractions" (intentional quotes), this area is now home to Pixie Hollow, where a water feature is still important to the decor:
