Without looking on the internet, I remember Ford naming a lot of their accessories with the name Rotunda. Their exhibit for the 1939 World's Fair was housed in a building called the Ford Rotunda. After the fair, the building was moved to Michigan, and burned to the ground in 1962, as a result of a fire in some Christmas decorations. That's the really simple story. I know there are a lot of other details to it, maybe I'll open a Rotunda thread on Off Topic.
