Modern air-conditioned motels

Based in Mt. Vernon, N.Y., Tourinns Inc. offered lodging at six motels. Many of this chain’s units were located along America’s new interstates and turnpikes, especially in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Tourinns offered motorists reliable and familiar services, including an onsite restaurant, service station and TV lounge. This colorful brochure, probably from the late 1950s, has scenes of pure motel bliss. I love the big TV antenna on the office roof.Tourinns
