At first glance this this group of photos is pretty eerie in a Dr. Strangelove type of way, but they have ice cream so how bad could it really be. Not to mention that pneumatic tube document delivery system. Any place with one of those is a-okay in my book. In fact, I am currently looking into installing a pneumatic tube document delivery system in my office, fuck email. If you are into the office tech of a certain sixties drama on AMC, then you will love this set of photos from the then “state-of-the-art” Pentagon from the early fifties, less than a decade after the building’s opening.
The Pentagon is so massive it is like a city in a city, back in the fifties it had all sorts of services like a barber shop, Western Union and even a type writer repair shop. Are there any ACL readers that work for the DoD that can verify if any of this stuff still exists? Or is that classified?
