    • In #2281 it's easy to see, when looking at the Hawk by the left edge & the -58 Impala at its right front, where GM might have got a wee bit scared by Studebakers Hawk & thought "OH! We BETTER do something like that!" ...& they almost did.

      • Post #2281 This parking lot contains ONE Ford pickup, ONE Chevy pickup, ONE Chevy panel truck, and something that looks like a van. Amazing difference to what you'd find today. And what looks like a Foreign parking area down at the bottom of fence.

        • Post 2281 parking lot was located at approx. 6128 Yucca St. in Hollywood. That's the Hollywood Freeway to the right that was later widened.

          The curve in the freeway came about due to the Hollywood Hotel location. This was the only time a freeway in CA was diverted on purpose around a building.

              • I don't think this has been posted previously. I think this picture is really cool in that it shows the creative nature of factory two tone paint schemes of the era.

                    • Boston's Old North Church. The Steeple was blown down on August 31,1954 by Hurricane Carol. Hard to think that this photo was taken maybe three years later, max. Looks like it was always there!

                          Leading vehicle is a 1928 or 1929 Ford Model A. The shape of the radiator shell and cowl mounted fuel tank are the 'dead-bang' giveaways.

                          • Yes, Boston's Old North Church has been seen here once or twice before, but that's O.K. Nice photo.
