interior design by Raymond Werbe Associates, Detroit

Remember that Detroit was the center of the universe in 1961.   How much things have changed.  Today the CEO of General Motors resigned with the company near bankruptcy.


  1. How fortuitous to see this photograph of an office prototype, designed by my father almost fifty years ago, less than an hour before I leave for Baltimore to witness what will probably be the last moments of his long life. Raymond A. Werbe is expected to pass away soon at age 94, active almost to the end. I’m sorry he wasn’t able to see your page.

    • Peter:

      I found these on a flickr site devoted to ads from the 1950s and 1960s. The ad was from fortune magazine. I’m sorry about your father – it sounds like he has had a long and productive life. I’m from the Detroit area originally myself, West Bloomfield area, specifically Walled Lake.

      I am amazed that you found and commented on this post. Best wishes.
