This parking lot and service center is located at 738 North Broadway in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this picture was taken in the mid-1960s. Most of the automobiles in this facility are 1950 to ’60s domestic vehicles, but two Volkswagen “Beetles” and a British sports car are contained in the mix. One of the VW’s is parked next to a Chevrolet Corvair station wagon, designed and built by the Automaker to compete with the small economy cars being imported at the time.
