As the old saying goes-

If you don't like my driving, stay off the sidewalk!

The streets of Oakland.

The continuing images of the 1957 automotive "mishaps" in Oakland would make a fine coffee table book especially when a 1956 Kaiser shows up at right.

Deja moo

I've seen something like that before, many years ago back in Chicago.

Thrift Store Heaven

I can only imagine what treasures could be found in the stores of that era!

La Palmera

477 9th St, between Washington and Broadway. Our photographer seems to be sticking to the same neighborhood, and not a particularly salubrious one even then. Two blocks East and half a block North of the Buick/Mercury encounter.
