Many of the images in the Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America photo collection such as this pre-war picture, with the passage of time have lost their background information. We are hopeful that our readers can identify the location of this parking lot based on the appearance of the industrial structures in the background.
One of the oldest automobiles in the photo appears to be a 1928 to ’29 Model “A” Ford sedan located in the middle of the third row in the lead image. The newest cars in this picture appear to date to about 1941, and one of the most interesting vehicles in the scene is the accessory laden Model “A” Ford roadster in the front row. The motorcycle appears to be a 1930 Harley Davidson VL V-twin.
