Chamber of wonders, or horrors.
Retrospace got its hands on a 1966 Astrodome guide (subhed: "The Astrodome is more than a stadium -- it is a way of treating people"), and while it's filled with such unimaginable wonders as $3.50 box seats, our favorite is the superbox page.

There, the Dome shows off its terrible, wonderful, appalling, entertaining "taste" in mod-`60s Houston interior decoration.

But which of the five featured boxes is most hideous? Let's examine!

OMG I want them to shoot a Mad Men ep in one of these! It's be period-appropriate. :)

4. looks like a Hampton Inn hotel room I stayed in (recently!)  3.  Appears to have the Queen's personal coat of arms on the wall, which unless she uses that room herself may not be actually legal.

Google Golliwoggs.  Oh, man.  I can't even begin to imagine what that room was about.
