LOS ANGELES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
This new "Jet-Age" Air Terminal is one of the world's finest and most modern. In the dome of the spectacular "Theme Building" is a unique restaurant and cocktail lounge with a 360° view of the airport activities. The control tower and nearby hotels can be seen in the background.

Leonard's comments:

Only now does it finally strike me how ridiculous a selling point is "this restaurant has a full 360° view of the airport." I still want to eat in that restaurant though. There is is, so close, yet out of touch, a toy of the upper class, not meant for my family who hardly ever even goes out to Carls Jr.
