    Minor correction this is Jackson County MO but a picture of downtown Kansas City MO KC Power and Light building is the tall one in the background.

    This has to be lining up for the Holland Tunnel on the NY side. Not much different today, but the house is gone.

    Dirt drag strip or dirt return road? Looks like they watered it whatever the case.

    The Lincoln Futura as it arrived at Barris' custom shop looking very sad and still painted red from starring the in the movie "It started with a kiss". What a bargain at $1!

  8. On the other hand, put the scene in a back yard, a little grave dug, and some flowers and a marker and you have a sweet "Ahh shucks" picture.

    Please keep them coming. Since I live in Los Angeles, I appreciate the L.A. pictures, especially if locations/descriptions are included.
     
  10. Eddie, having grown up in a small beach town I find the pictures of "The Big City" fascinating. Just wish I knew where they are (were). If you know can you label them. If not that's OK too, keep posting.

    I also like seeing pictures of the insides of shops and stores and look at all the "stuff" they had for sale.
     
  11. Like this!!! :eek::eek:

    It's the 1955 Mercury D-528 "Beldone" concept car.

  14. The car on the left looks to be a Nash Airflyte, Statesman or similar car.

    This is a photo composite. Sammy was not in this film and (perhaps) not in any films in 1953.

    Probably obvious this is a composite to most of you guys. Especially when you try to figure what is going on in the background below Sammy's right shoe! Photo by Frank not-Worth-believing?
