House of the Future Mystery
It saves me a lot of research time when my slides are date stamped. This particular Kodak slide was stamped December 1967. I thought it was so cool to see the construction of "New" Tomorrowland going on around the Monsanto House of the Future. Somehow, the plastic marvel defied the odds and proved to be a problem when the wrecking ball just bounced off the exterior. According to Disney lore, the Monsanto House of the Future took 2 weeks to demolish.
When I looked up the date of "New" Tomorrowland's debut, I was reminded that it was July 2, 1967. This means that whoever took this photo waited an awful long time to develop it. Still, this is probably one of the last shots taken of the durable Home of the Future. Looking in the window, it appears that even though the sign out front has been dismantled, the interior is still furnished.
