For today’s installment in the Parking Lot Series, we travel to Los Angeles, California, and a view of two sites taken circa 1959. The location of this scene is not known, but hopefully, the buildings in the background will serve as a clue for readers to identify were in the City this image was taken.
There are a wide variety of American cars in the view, including some that may date back to the late-1940s. The greater Los Angeles area was also one of the hot spots in the US where the sales imported cars began to gain a foothold in the fifties; the photo contains about a half a dozen of these vehicles including a small sports car.
Tell us what you find of interest in the expandable image below courtesy of the USC Libraries.
