Weather Domes - 1956

Gleefully inspired from vintage_ads, the idea of a weather dome probably seemed far-fetched when this magazine ad was published in 1956. The image shows up cropped online without attribution, but a little digging revealed that sponsor was "America's Independent Light and Power Companies"--whoever they are!

Visitors to West Edmonton Mall's World Waterpark or Germany's Tropical Island Resort know that you can make a bit of paradise in cold weather places.
