    Funny, because whenever I hear the term 'Bullnose', one of these comes to mind:

    The '54 Packard behind the Crown Vic is a Pacific hardtop, 1,189 were assembled.

    The Crown Vic is tu-toned: Snowshoe White/Tropical Rose.

    Yes, I saved it to my computer years ago, but that's okay. Lots of the pictures from old posts are no longer available since Photobucket changed to a pay format.

    Do any grocery stores still have 'Parcel Pick-up' like that anymore? Woodward's 'Famous Food Floors' when they were around had the same parcel pickup service as shown in the photo for their grocery stores that were located in shopping malls. A friend of mine worked at Woodward's food floor when he was still in school. Although I never heard any complaints from customers, the grocery staff called it "Parcel Mix-up".

    When I worked in an A&P (about 1955), we would carry the groceries to the customer's car, no matter how close or far they parked (that A&P did not have a parking lot nor a place to pull up [not counting the loading dock for truck shipments]).

    Now, many of the grocery stores around here offer home delivery and that A&P is long gone..

    Here is a picture from Albany OR Regional Museum. They misspelled Studebaker, but my daughter still caught it and sent it to me to share. It would be nice to find one like that now....for that price.

    I believe the local Co-op here offers that service when one request it.

    Up until a few years ago, their shopping carts never left the building. The carry-out team had different upright style carts with bigger wheels on them to handle heavy snow. In the past few years, their regular shopping carts are in a covered area out in the lot like the rest of the grocery stores.

    One of the places we bought groceries in South Dakota had a sheltered area you could pull through and someone would load your groceries during bad weather. This was in the 1980s.

    Hornbacher's stores in Fargo you can have your groceries put in a big plastic tub with a number painted on it that the bagger at the till then gives you a board about the size of a A size sheet of paper with a matching number. You then go to your car and meanwhile the tub gets carried over to a roller slide/conveyor that goes outside to a covered drive-up area. You pull your car around and find your tub waiting with the others. Not sure if someone helps transfer or not as I never have enough stuff to use this OR I wheel my cart out to the car myself. I remember 35-40yrs ago when I would go shopping with my mom at stores in the "big" town near (20miles) where I grew up that had the same setup.

    In Oregon there is a store called Fred Meyer, that still has the drive through so your groceries do not get wet as you place them in the car. Always a busy still to this day.

    Mark, they will also help you out with your groceries and load them in your car for you. They are now owned by Kroger but still maintain the "family owned" spirit.

    From today's Hemmings Blog. Could that be a 1964-1966 "Lark" taxicab on the extreme right side? (Light-colored body, dark-colored top with taxi device on top.) BP

    To translate for this side of the Atlantic, "wing" is fender.
    It looks like a 1964-1965 Lark type to me.

    I love the way Studebaker used terms from the wagon days like 'dash' and British terms like 'wing guard'

    It sure is!!

    And look at that well-equipped Wagonaire in the lower left corner right by that 'Mass Envelope' sign.

    Could that be rear of another '64-'65 Lark-type just below that 'Knai Shoes' sign up the one street?

    I found on Wikipedia that the USS IOWA was deactivated at San Francisco in September 1948. This might be a picture of this event.

    The IOWA (BB:61) is now located in Los Angeles (San Pedro) Harbor as a museum ship.

    The other IOWA class battleships are also museum ships:

    USS NEW JERSEY (BB:62): Camden NJ .. USS MISSOURI (BB:63): Pearl Harbor .. USS WISCONSIN (BB:64): Hampton VA

    Very nice pic. I hope you enjoyed your cruise to Hawaii. Thanks for the details, by the way. So far, I thought the IOWA was a single ship, not a battleship class.
