Welcome to 1969: Mad Men's Award-Winning Set Design

Most folks have no idea how much goes into taking a newly built and painted Photo shoot/commercial/Live stage/movie "set", and aging, junking it up, breaking a few things, or otherwise making it (oddly enough)"invisible"

"Distressing", is it not?
