Lancaster, PA. Armstrong Cork Company. Copyright 1954.
Booklet, color photo illustrations, 18pp, 8 1/2 x 11 inches, stiff paper wrappers. 1/4 inch spot to front cover; interior in very good condition. Page after cringe-making page of converted spaces--basements and garages--in which Armstrong Asphalt Tile is utilized as floor covering. Ten large color photos with clever captions draw us into the world of sow's-ear-turned-purse: "Parties Are Gay in a Room Like This"; "Rooftop Atmosphere--Down in the Basement"; "Your Rumpus Room Can Be Anything You Like"; "A Handsome Apartment--in the Garage!" Cold-War Era furnishings and decor, plus patterned asphalt floor coverings, aim to turn a dank spot bright and cheerful. An intriguing booklet, in very good condition, suggesting how the good life can be had on a modest budget, down in the basement. Item #47347
