  6. But doncha guys love the fact that, in 1961, there was still at least the aspiration to middle-brow glamour; the goony yet endearing idea that a pile of rocks "artfully" arranged in the lobby and an Orbach's Norman Norell knock-off could somehow transform a Holiday Inn into a veritable Versailles?

  7. I do so agree with you! It is a glamorous pile of rocks, and I am sure that people would return to their humble abodes, get some rocks and arrange them in their foyer and gardens
