On the NASA website, a lovely collection of space colony art from the 1970s, looking like the kind of stuff you'd find on the covers of yesteryears sci-fi novels. Above, a cutaway of the Toroidal Colonies, capable of housing 10,000 space colonists.

Three space colony summer studies were conducted at NASA Ames in the 1970s. A number of artistic renderings of the concepts were made. These have been scanned and are available here as small, medium, large, and publication quality jpeg images. Scans by David Brandt-Erichsen.
