We have temporarily run out of photos for the “Parking Lot Series” at this point so for today’s feature a series of three images of parked cars is taking its place. All of the pictures were shot on the streets of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The lead image dated June 6, 1961, is a view of the corner of Passyunk and 17th Streets where Hal Woodard, a broadcasting personality from WFIL-TV was set up in the station’s mobile studio. Beyond the trailer on the left are parked cars and on the right-hand side of the photo is the Southside Rambler used car lot.
Share with us what you find of interest in these photographs courtesy of PhillyHistory.
- This is a second photograph of the Southside Rambler service garage taken on the other side of the WFIL-TV trailer.
- This early evening scene of parked cars with enhanced headlights was taken on February 6, 1939 at 36th and Spring Garden Streets in the City.
