The dark rooms of the 1970s

Watching old movies from the 70s like “All the President’s Men” it’s intersting how dark the wood interiors of the court rooms were back then. For awhile at least, dark wood paneling was all the rage. Glad to see those days have passed!

“All the President’s Men” is also a great way to see what the world of reporting was like circa 1970 before the internet. Phone booths and rotary phones, typewriters, yellow pages, pens, pencils, notebooks, file cabinets, newspapers and just a lot of grunt work trying to search for information since there wasn’t a Google or Siri around – and lots and lots of paper everywhere! Now all things of the past thanks to the computer and the web.
