      Great Photo Ads like this are not as common/well known as Most, that had Postcards etc. I think this is a Magazine Ad?

      It SHOULD have been in a "Boating Mag." if it wasn't.

        It's Mr. and Mrs. Thom along with their children doing what they do best, peeping! The peeping Thoms gave up the binoculars a while back however, now they spend their time on Facebook.

          I just can't imagine standing on the roof like that, I be so afraid I'd cave it in! But if that place still exists like that and I had a wagon I would sure as heck be trying to get a shot of my car there.

            Isn't that the Golden Gate Bridge in the background? If so, there is an ad with a black 59 hardtop that was taken under the city side of the approach.

              That's definitely the southern end of the Golden Gate bridge (with Fort Point).
              By the angle and distance, my best guess for the photo location is Treasure Island.

              Great image. I can't help but think they'd be much more comfortable (and safer) with the '63 model.

                Yes, Fort Point. Thanks. Maybe someone can post the ad with the black 59 hardtop taken there. It's a well-done picture.

                  I think Treasure Island is too far away. I'm thinking it must be by the Wave Organ but it's hard to tell with the wide-angle lens used on Street View.
