The top one I've seen before - she's got a "stand by your man" look.
The bottom one has got a "I can't believe he dragged me out to look at that "STUFF"" look.
The reception desk at GM 1965
American Indians also used their version of the "evil" Nazi symbol. Hitler wasn't even a good copy-cat. Gary
It's too easy to guess if you just pick up the address of the picture:
Swastika was an early Indian symbol an also used among other nations, for example Finns, long time before Hitler.
You are absolutely right, Maggie.
The Finnish Air Force chose the swastika as their sign in 1918 (or 1919) because the first aeroplane was a donation from the Swedish count Eric von Rosen whose personal sign was the swastika. Here's the plane, a Thulin Type D, straight from Sweden, with the blue painted swastikas on the wings. The Finnish Air Force used the swastika sign until 1945.
Note that Hitler took the swastika as the sign of the Nazi party later, only in 1920 or 1921. The Nazi swastika was usually (but not always) tilted:
... but the Finnish swastika was always straight:
... as it had always been as a good luck symbol for Finns.
So most of the history of the swastika has nothing to do with Hitler ant the Nazis.
I think this is the Buick Administration Building lobby in Flint Mi.
Reception desk at the GM Technical Center. Here is another view of the desk, and one of the staircase.
"GM Styling Section administration building lobby. The fiberglass 'teacup' reception desk was sawn up and hauled away in the early 70s along with the hand painted Buell Mullen stainless steel screen behind it, replaced with knockoffs for the Design Center's 75th Anniversary in 2003."
That's actually a pretty awesome room.
On a 1927 Illinois State road map what is now Illinois Route 17 was known as the "Swastika Trail".
Seems the swastika has been used many times in history - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika - even on an American car; the KRIT - https://pageorgersj.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/krit_swastika.jpg
