James Lileks — Man of Many Talents (and Interests) — collects (among many, many other things) old motel postcards. As with all this other stuff, he scans them in and posts them on the web, with his observations.

Poor TV receptions, floor-to-ceiling windows with curtains, linoleum floors, rattling air conditions, a pool (yea! a pool!), and breakfast at the diner (click on photo to see full image):

Ah, yes. I remember it well. ..bruce w..
