Final Signs and the Trashcan of Tomorrow

Here are the final two signs from the Home of the Future. The first explains how the "wings" of the structure worked and was placed under one of the wings. The showcase is made out of the wing with pictures inside showing the structural details. The second is of the exit sign with people leaving the building. In the right hand side you can see an electrician working on the plants of tomorrow. You can also see how much glass was in the home.

The final photo is the Trashcan of Tomorrow with the playground style furniture in the yard. I believe Dan Goodsell on his blog A Sampler of Things posted a photo of a group sitting on the yard furniture.

interesting how the "trashcan of Tomorrow" remained basically the same design up untill the Tomorrowland 1998 redo...we like to call "Taco-Bell Tomorrow"

Wow, what a great series of photos that was! Now I wonder why they didn't take photos of other signs. Love photo #1 with the details.

oh man! I love picture 2! Too bad it's the exit and not the entrance. Still - it's an "almost like being there" moment.

Another view of my favorite Disneyland icon that I have NEVER seen before. Thank you!
