#155 Milam High-rise Air Conditioned Building (1928) – Landmarks

I love air conditioning.  If Willis H. Carrier were still alive, I would hug him today!

Yes, my A/C is fixed, and I commented earlier – fixed better than ever since it now cycles on and off much more appropriately.  It took only two hours to lower the inside temperature from 92 to a oh-so-comfortable 78 degrees.

Footnote – San Antonio is the home of the first air conditioned multi-story office building – The Milam Building, built in 1928 (caution – PDF).  It still has the original huge sign on the roof boasting “100% air-conditioned”.

So today I proclaim it “Carrier Day” in the La Gesse Household!
