From my ever-dwindling stash of Kodak Instamatic negatives comes this neat shot featuring oodles of Mark VI Autopia vehicles in a fashionable array of hues. I am partial to the turquoise car in the foreground (or is it aquamarine?). The shadows cast by those distinctive "eyebrows" give these cars a slightly menacing look that is pretty cool. You can almost hear them growling.
I have titled this photo, "Main Street - Early Morn". It is just too much work to write "MornING", plus I sound poetic as hell, and the ladies love that. Fans of that water fountain are having a good day (C&H sugar bag not included). There is a crowd up near the castle which makes me think that the park must have just opened. Did they do the "rope drop" back then?
Here's a delightfully busy picture at the hub, with the wonderful motorized Fire Truck in the foreground, the Horse Drawn Streetcar nearby, and the Monsanto House of the Future still looking hella cool in the background.
