motel postcards

Still trapped in '50s land, but this is my last mid-century post for a bit.  (Well, until Friday. You'll see!)

I came upon an interesting post by the Mid-Century Modernist. It features motel interior shots, mostly from the 1950s. Some of these rooms were printed on postcards! -- apparently motels sometimes created cards depicting their fab room options, hoping to lure tourists with their hip designs.

All I can say is that such postcards would definitely lure me, if cheapo hotels still looked like this....if only!

and my two favorites....

(I like how prominent the TVs are to each room, haha.)
