1950s Autopia in BW
Still more from the prolific 1957/58 photographer who has populated this week's posts. Today we get a view of the Autopia. Not too many exciting details in the closeup, other than a better view of the young boys who seem annoyed with the cast member holding up his arm.
Living in Southern California, it seems odd that an attraction is based around driving a car on the freeway. Traffic and congestion have taken away most of the joy of traveling on the roadways. Yet, this opening day attraction is still a hit.
It will be interesting to see if the new sponsor, Honda, brings anything new to the attraction when it reopens.
Drive on over to my main website for more vintage and current Autopia fun.
