Today’s Parking Lot Series feature contains something for everyone, three different images taken in two different decades. The lead photo is a 1969 view of the Alright Auto parking lot located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This facility utilized hydraulically actuated storage racks that lifted and stored an automobile high enough off of the ground so that another car could be driven underneath it, and thereby park two vehicles in the space for one.
The enlargeable late-1950s photo below contains a “Car Park” facility located near the Atlanta, Georgia, Airport. The second automobile to the right of the entrance of the lot, a small MGA roadster appears to be tiny compared to the sea of large-sized American cars.
And finally, the second photo below dated January of 1953, taken at a commercial parking lot located at Broad and Sedgwick Street, also in Philadelphia has a mix of 1930s, ’40s, and early-’50s automobiles.
