How do you get out, if you are in the middle? Great photos Tom.

Exactly !  I'm certain it's a valet service, but it would still take a while.  If you're in a hurry, you are out of luck.

During those times in Long Beach, we were the "Big Dogs" and so at 16 years old we could go to the beach and not have a care in the world!!!!!!!!!!   Also, in the parking lot with the Tudor........the ever popular 57 hardtop with black rims and poverty caps!

Austin 1960.  This is during the construction of I-35 aka the NAFTA corridor.  At this time, Austin had a population of around 10,000.  Nowadays it's closer to 400,000.

I used to go to a blues club on Carrall called "The Spinning Wheel" Powder Blues was the "house" band. Many years later, when my kid started in Elementary school, I started having a conversation with her music teacher, he was a really good jazz trumpet player. We started talking about the late seventies Vancouver punk scene and stuff, realized we had been in a lot of the same places at the same time. As the conversation went on farther, I mentioned the Spinning Wheel, and he said "oh yea, I played there many times, I was in the Powder Blues band". Great "small world" moment.

Vancouver's Orpheam Theater.

I saw Chuck Jones there. Did  a two hour monologue with video clips of his favorite Warner Bros cartoons and background stories on the production and writing of each one, along with background anecdotes about Tex Avery, Fritz Freleng and so on. Two of the funniest, most interesting hours of my life, if you thought the cartoons were funny, you aint seen/heard nothing till you spend a couple hours listening to him. And I was convinced most of it was ad-lib and off the cuff. Absolutely fascinating. RIP Chuck, you were one of a kind.

I had a hunch, but needed to look this one up, it's the New York World's Fair, 1964. World Fairs are a dead issue now, no need to travel to see the latest and greatest anymore, everything is at our finger tips in the digital age.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

These are not my photos, I scammed them off the internet, but I have been in this building, it is AMAZING. Its the main market in Pnom Penn, Cambodia. Its based on an Arabic design, it is self cooling. The high dome in the center with the vents on the side draws the hot air up where it spills out of the vents, which creates an ingoing airflow in the four spokes that radiate outward from the center. The city is very hot and humid, when I was there the outside temp was in the mid 90s' and very humid, it was very cool and comfortable inside the market, and you could feel a gentle cool breeze moving in towards the center. An ancient design and it really works very well. It also doesn't require any artificial light during the day, all the open vents provide really nice natural light.
