We at Stadiafile have been scouring flea markets, antique shops and, well, mainly ebay, in a concerted effort to expand our collection of vintage stadium postcards for your viewing pleasure. Feast your eyes on our inaugural offering – ASTRODOMAIN, as it was known back in 1971. As an arena, one is still struck by the ambition of The Astrodome, aka the 8th Wonder of the World, but as an urban zone/hospitality experience, we’re not sure whether the Howard Johnson and Astroworld Hotel in the foreground excite. The Houston skyline on the horizon reminds us of the suburban nature of this and many Mega-projects from the 1960s and ’70s.
