Description Detail from an advertisement for automatic doors made by The Stanley Works, as seen in a 1950s architecture magazine. A smartly dressed man and woman carry parcels as they exit a store. Because the door is automatically activated when they step on the bright-green 'magic carpet', they can walk through easily even though their hands are full. Artist unattributed.
