Men at Work

With this season of Mad Men over and the last episode ending with Sterling Cooper's loss of their office space and their unfortunately setup in a hotel suite my mind drifted to the once high status of the desk. In the 21st century the idea of a corner office has been lost. Where corner offices once stood, cubicles have taken it's place. And where glorious desks once sat, multiple desk-style units have take over the wall space. So, here is my tribute to the days of corner offices, grand desks and the lunchtime martini. Here are men at work.
