Santa Maria Motel

Is what it looks like.

Those were the days

When we content to just go to a motel like this for our holidays and just lie in the sun. I love the way all the chairs are facing that palm tree. Like it's the focal point of their garden.

Key West 1957

I wonder what motel this is--they do have a PA speaker up there to the right. Maybe it's playing the top 40 from 1957!

Eve of the Great Society

There's something about this picture that just sums up everything in the American climate that led up to the Great Society about ten years from now. It's so eerie.
