A Banquet of 60s Kitsch ~ Madmen at the Library

Sometimes the only thing to say is "Wow." Lloyd Rule's promotional photos for Green Mountain Townhouses in Lakewood, Colorado, capture the mid-60s style in all it's glory.

The helmet hairdos, garish colors, and bubbly sexism tread the thin line between historic and anachronistic, and show another tiny, amazing corner of our vast, amazing collection.

To see all eleven photos, follow this link Green Mountain Townhomes.

Don't miss the Hot Tub shots!

Great pictures! What fun! They give us a glimpse into another time:)

These are great!

Thanks for sharing.

We renovated them out -

And now they're all the rage on TV - Have you watched MadMen?

The whole show is set in the early 60s style that these photos depict. They could use these for set ideas! Give it a look: http://www.amctv.com/shows/mad-men

And there's that pink kitchen we've renovated out of our homes! Interesting to see it in all its shiny new glory.
