Yes, Even More Home of the Future Signs

Here are two more images of the Monsanto Home of the Future (or as it is sometimes called House of the Future.) Both of these were in the garden area seen while you were waiting to enter the home. The first is a little tough to read but it does state See the Home That Chemistry Built. The displays under neath the sign in the glass showcases appear to show some of the features and advertise the individual companies that manufactured some of the fixtures. The second also touts the home with See the Molded Walls and Ceilings. I can just picture a theater or circus barker for a side show selling the show to a crowd....

If you look closely in the reflection of the last picture, down at the lower right hand side, you can see a reflection of the photographer.

There's something about these signs that reminds me of the little "diorama" signs you'd see while in line for Adventure Thru Inner Space. Maybe they're the same shape? I'll have to do some research.

yeah-obviously the sign shape features the cross-section of the house itself--but they are similar to the Inner Space sign PODS AND the Goodyear PeopleMover sign PODS-----Patrick:anypictures of those Peoplemover signs??

You can make out 2 buckets of the Skyway in the top picture - the phtographer was facing North-ish.

Hey Mike- no pics of the Peoplemover sign. The sign photos are all from 1966.
