The George Washington Bridge

If the George Washington Bridge and I-95 are part of your travel plans this Thanks-giving holiday weekend, keep this photo taken on the same weekend in 1956, fifty-five years ago in mind. This photo shows us four lanes of traffic in both directions with the bridge totally filled.

We just posted this photo, to show you regardless of where you will be traveling on this upcoming Sunday afternoon and evening, to think ahead and travel safe and have a great weekend. The Old Motor photo.

The Old Motor Goes To The Big City…..


Automobiles, trucks and double decker buses are seen in this bustling late 1920s street scene.

The USS Akron is seen over NYC above and what appears to be a steam powered Navy ship is seen below being escorted by a pair of steam powered tug boats.
