Today’s overhead parking lot view taken in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is identified as being located on the west side of the Schuylkill River south of Drexel University and the nearby railroad yard at the intersection of Market Street and J.F. Kennedy Boulevard.
The image, taken in late 1960 to ’61 contains the parking facility and a sunken courtyard in the top left-hand corner. The vast majority of the domestic motor vehicles in the lot are 1950s and early-1960s models. For the time, possibly due to the large number of students who attended nearby colleges and universities in this area of the City there is a more significant percentage of imported automobiles than typically seen.
