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...
