The above VCP is from a postcard for Altman's Charleston Garden on 5th Avenue in New York. This was the restaurant in B Altman & Co - a department store at the time. It seems to still be there as an event space. This restaurant was on the fifth floor of the building! Oh, I wish I could have seen it.
This postcard was sent in August 1956 to Laguna Beach, CA from Flushing, NY.
The hex codes for this palette are from left to right: 287e68, 2e7a9a, 994c59, 70b4a4.
This illustrated advertising color palette is from a postcard for The Sherman Hotel in Chicago.
This color palette is so sophisticated mid-century. I love the colors and could totally imagine a living room or office lobby done in these colors. This postcard has no message on the back.
