Middle of the Street Parking. Hey, That's not a half bad idea where parking is scarce...

Nice cards, JessEm.

Middle of the street parking seems to have been a common practice; there certainly are enough postcards & photographs ...

This begs the question: why were the streets, of so many small towns, so wide to begin with?

Those of us who grew-up on movies of The Old West are likely to say "cattle drives", but that is insufficiently universal.

I think that people built further back from the street because of the dust (kicked-up from unpaved roads) and the smell (droppings from animal transport).

Once paved & mostly traveled by motor car, those very wide streets accommodated middle of the street parking.

My two cents.

Cheers,

My SCF Postulate: there is just about nothing that you can add to your collection that will not, sooner or later, be fodder for a post to SCF.

Days after posting The Taylor AeroCar postcard (above), I was walking down the street, minding my own business, passing a newspaper rack, when I looked down and spotted the cover story of the weekend edition of The Epoch Times:

http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/134...l-this-time/ ... Are Flying Cars for Real This Time?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Epoch_Times

Cars parked outside The Palladium in Los Angeles.

The card serial number is for 1953, but the photograph could be older; Russ Morgan had a l-o-n-g career.

This car is a Steyr model 50 or 55, an Austrian "People's Car" produced 1936-1940.

You gotta love the aerodynamic styling, from the headlight mounting to the recessed door handles.

http://members.a1.net/steyr-baby/index.html ... more about the Steyr



The car appears on a mass-produced real photo card of Austria's Großglockner Mountain (et al) as seen from the parking lot of the Fuscher Törl monument, a memorial to the workers who died during the building of the Großglockner Hochalpenstrasse (High Alpine Road), which opened on 3 August 1935.





http://www.grossglockner.at/ ... the mountain has a website!

http://www.grossglockner.at/en/hoch...er-toerl.htm ... as does the memorial

Got to hand it to you ikeyPikey.
You sure got a lot of mileage out of this one card.

Now see what you did?

Now I have to go through all my PCs looking for cars.

After the hours it took to find that bloody car, you'd best believe I posted it twice!

(Besides, like nobody reads the Indexed Photo Postcards thread.)
