vintage flooring

Did a little more research today (shockingly, all the tile samples I requested yesterday arrived today, which was nice but slightly annoying since we were waiting for a package that never came, and just got floor tiles everytime the doorbell rang) and found a great if slightly bizarre reference for period flooring. It's at a law-firm's website, and is apparently a guide to asbestos-containing flooring. But for my purposes, what's important is that this flooring guide [sorry, the link is now dead] consists of excerpts from Armstrong sales booklets from 1954 up to 1980! Great reference if you're decorating, great nostalgia if you're not. (And yes, there's plenty of avocado as you go down the list.)
