I’m closing out my ‘Ford at Fifty’ article series today, but I thought I would share this great little bit about how the City of Sacramento was growing up, getting bigger and modernizing with curb service for cars. In the perfect world you never needed to get out of your car to do mundane tasks. (Remember those bank teller drive up windows with the air tubes? I loved those as a kid!) Anyway, I just found this amusing as curb drop and drive thru anything, with the exception of fast food and coffee, has sort of disappeared these days. I hope you’ve enjoyed these scans, and a peak back at ‘car life’ in 1953.
As a bonus, I scanned the Ford factory map. Why? Cause I just love the graphic quality of it.
