What the Time-Life Building looked like in the 1960s

Designed by Harrison & Abramowitz & Harris, the Time-Life Building opened in 1959 and is where the fictional ad agency Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce from Mad Men is set. Looking at these rare photos of the building and its spaces, it’s hard not to be impressed by Time-Life’s majestic aesthetics — the sleek and decadent furnishings are briskly matched by a functional, modern style.
