Googie – Postcards from the Cutting Edge
We’ve previously posted about Googie Architecture – the predominant style of roadside cafe, restaurant and petrol station architecture in post-war America and how its combination of futuristic looks and space age vision spread from one café in California across the whole nation.
We didn’t know at the time but such was the popularity of Googie Architecture that postcards were produced celebrating Googie inspired structures in various American towns and cities. Feast your eyes on more fantastic space age architecture, flying saucer shapes, starbursts, groovy boomerang shapes and of course, cafes shaped like a Mexican hat.
