Editors Note: We will be taking the Columbus Day holiday weekend off and will return again on Tuesday morning. Today’s Saturday feature is a look back to a pair of very popular articles posted here three years ago featuring freeway scenes in Los Angeles.
Last week a very popular photo of a freeway in Los Angeles taken in October of 1959, was featured here and today we return with four more images that are a part of the same batch. The press photos are courtesy of the USC Libraries and are titled “Venice Freeway” which has lead to some confusion since a reader commented that this is the Santa Monica Freeway. Perhaps these additional scenes with landmarks in the background will result in the location and roadway being identified.
Today’s images contain a number of interesting vehicles that date from the late-1940s up until 1959. Interestingly both a Chevrolet Cameo pickup and a 1959 Chevy El Camino are in one photo. Last week’s photograph contained a Mercury that was “nosed” (trim removed from the hood) and today a customized Studebaker coupe that has been “decked” is in one of the views. Do share with us what you find of interest in these images.
