Luxurious comfort

The Carney Motel, facing U.S. 66 in Rolla, Mo., offered many conveniences to motorists. The motel was equipped with a swimming pool, air-conditioned rooms, even a baby-sitting service. The Carney boasted of large picture windows in each room, which stared out to the new four-lane 66. This late 1950s brochure offers a idyllic picture of mid-century roadside lodging. Fresh from a swim, a young woman stands frozen in front of the motel’s colonade.
