Today we have a pair of parking lot images for you to peruse, the first in Washington DC, and the second in Chicago. The lead photo shows a lot in front of a large US Government building where parking was available for 15-cents between 6 pm and midnight. In addition to the cars at the parking facility, just to the left of the sign in the sky is a dirigible. The photograph is dated 1939 – tell us what you find of interest here.
The second image below dated 1941, shows the second lot, located in Chicago, IL, filled with late-1930s to early-1940s automobiles. As seen here in earlier photographs of parking lots where vehicles were parked by attendants, it was common practice at the time to pack the cars in and locate the vehicles bumper-to-bumper of what is often referred to as parking-by-ear. Tell us what you find of interest in the images courtesy of the Library of Congress.
