The ultimate in 1970s technology - a photo essay

The glorious, wonderfully scintillating, thing about staying in hotels of the cheaper variety is that they often pride themselves on offering the latest in 30 years out of date technology. Case in point: our keys in Amherst Massachusetts!

A photo essay, explaining, in the words of the hotel reception clerk, how to use the chicest of keys:

Take the "key"

Push it into the slot


then turn the handle

remove the key

I think this is my favourite hotel key of all time.
