HOF Interior and Miss Piggy



I know, I know...they’re dark and the color sucks, but I’m posting ’em anyway. Interior shots of the Monsanto House of the Future are so rare that I thought I’d show these despite the fact that they are not the best of quality. These are both from July 1961. The exterior shot is from approximately 1957/58.





On a totally different note...The Muppet Show Season 2 has been released on DVD. I had forgotten the stellar guest stars that the show had, and even after all these years it is still entertaining. Just enough sly humor for adults to enjoy as well as the kiddies. There is an especially dark humored interview with the Muppets in the special features section where they discuss Jim Henson. Available at Amazon.com.

Anything inside the HOF is good with me!

Yes, those interiors are unbelievable. I've never found ONE, and you have what, three or four? The second one actually looks pretty cozy.

I have some slides that are just too far gone for color correction, sometimes they make decent black and white images though. Have you ever tried that?

Is it just me, or does the furniture in there look like it came from Ikea?

Great interior shots. I have a couple of dark images that I can not even make out what the photographer was shooting.
