A couple of handsome vehicles in 'Chinatown', 1953. I especially like the orange Dodge.

CASIGNS (Brian) can tell you better, but in the early days of traffic there were no signs, signals, or any helpful things for handling traffic. Signs were placed by concerned citizens than by auto clubs and eventually by government. Signals were developed by companies and sold to municipalities of which they varied greatly. The Automobile Club of So Cal was instrumental in this development and placement. It was a time of " let's try this, let's try that" till they found what works. This was an early way of handling the traffic at the time, it worked for them but not when cars got more popular.

Oh my, how did you miss that? My father worked for Willys at some point after he was with Kaiser and Packard. I've driven one of those.

Willys sedans were not a big hit. I'd take a Jeepster in a minute though. They were great.

Notice the divided windshield on the Aero. LOL.

P.S.

...didn't mind the divided windscreen on the Jeepster. And they came with a free dog :-)

:previous: Much more interesting with the before and afters. Thx GW.

CVS really did a number on that warehouse. Do they actually believe that's an improvement?
It's a warehouse..why try to disguise it?

The windows are the big loss, but that's what happens when an economy changes over from manufacturing to warehousing.
