History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

Sterling Cooper

Mad Men is the best. Just the best. But, somehow, it didn't occur to me to theme a Mad Men post until... well, watching Mad Men's return tonight! So, today, a bonus post!

You remember the building Sterling Cooper was in in the first couple seasons? [if you don't-- go watch Mad Men! Now!]. Well, LIFE magazine has a series of shots of a Madison Avenue office building in 1957... that's pretty much that building. 

Do do DO do...

A board room in the building. Just waiting for Don and Roger, right?? Source
