Today’s feature image was taken at the Weir Cook Municipal Airport in Indianapolis, Indiana. Now known as the Indianapolis International Airport it was named the Indianapolis Municipal Airport when it opened in 1931 and renamed after Weir Cook, a World War I flying ace who died in 1943 while in action during World War II.
The parking lot in the photograph is in front of a new airport terminal named after Cook in when it opened in October of 1956. The latest automobile in the lot is a new 1957 model, and the oldest car appears to be a late-1930s sedan.
Another photo of interest is included at the bottom of the post that contains a rare view of a mid-1930s Dodge Texaco tank truck with styling similar to that used on the Chrysler and DeSoto Airflows. Tell us what you find of interest in these images courtesy of the Indiana Historical Society.
