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.

Harold Lloyd

Here we see our movie star friend Harold Lloyd who gave us the hilarious silent film taxi drive with Babe Ruth recently thru NYC. Here his is again with a starlet and what appears to be a Buick roadster.
