I have a few random vintage slides that are kind of cool for various reasons, but I have no idea where they were taken. Maybe somebody out there will recognize one of these places!
This first one is fun, photographed from the back seat of somebody's car as it drove down the main street of some town. "The Young Lions" is playing at the local theater, so we can date the picture to 1958. Iit's a movie about three soldiers during WWII, in case you were wondering. Hey! That ambulance (or whatever the red vehicle is) is driving on the wrong side of the road I have the feeling someone is going to be able to ID this place!
The next photo (from July 1959) shows a cute little town nestled at the base of some imposing hills. Maybe we can make a pit stop at the Chevron station? This definitely looks like one of those places that was driven through on the way to someplace else.
And the last one, which is undated, but almost certainly from the 1950's... it reminds me of parts of Pennsylvania, but could be Missouri or Iowa or just about a zillion other places. Look at all those wonderful cars!
I hope you have enjoyed today's Mystery Locations!
