Editors Note: Our network of computers was hacked over the weekend and finally late last night we were able to cobble enough wires together to put this feature together. The Old Motor Motor will not be running on all of its cylinders this week; the posts will be brief and after Friday’s feature is posted we will shut down again for the weekend to do more repair work. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our readers.
Today’s lead image is dated by the source to November 9, 1951, and contains a parking lot identified as being located at the intersection of 22nd and 23rd Streets in the North End of Philadelphia, PA. There is a lot to see in this photo, including Pennsylvania Railroad tracks, locomotives, and cars visible in the lead photo on the top of the wall behind the parking facility.
