Nash hubcap (early-to-mid-1950s)

Found one of these in a box of old hubcaps at Habitat this afternoon...

Online, they list for about forty or fifty bucks each.

It will look good on the wall of Lucinda's cousin's storage shed, which is built to look like an old country gas station..

It already has a lot of automotive and gasoline signs, a couple of old pop coolers, and even my old Gulf Oil sign.

And out in front, under the canopy, are two old gas pumps.

Maybe next summer...at his July 4th barbecue and family party...(oh, and right in front of the "gas station" is an above-ground pool...)

Unfortunately, all we own is a shitty Samsung flip phone, and I don't even know how to upload pix and link them here...or anywhere else...

My father was a major early adapter, as I've related before. I am just the opposite. I hate making changes. If it works, use it until it's dead.

I just found out the hard way that Blu-Ray DVDs are unplayable on our 15-year-old machine, after Lucinda bought bootlegs that were shipped from China.

CTA articulated car set 51 (formerly 5001) found new life on the Skokie Swift after being oddball equipment on other lines, along with its three mates. Here, they are seen on the Swift on October 25, 1964, where they helped provide much-needed capacity in the face of unexpectedly large ridership several months after the new branch line began service.

SKOKIE SWIFT

Articulated unit 51 on Chicago Transit Authority's Skokie Swift line, now called the Yellow Line

Image is from October 25, 1964, shortly after this unit began running on the Skokie line.

It was originally built in 1947 (just like me!) and refurbished for Skokie use, after running elsewhere.

I rode on it during my last year in high school, in 1964-65. It survived until the mid-Eighties.

A decade later, Jewish kids were calling it the "Yom Kippur Clipper" or the "Rosh Hashana Rocket."

I laughed my ass off when I heard about that, a few years ago. Whatta hoot!

These used to be found on CTA buses and trains.

They held brochures about the system, and schedules, too.

I wish I had one next to my toilet.

51.jpg

Transit tragedy, Downtown Chicago, February 4, 1977 

11 killed, 180 hurt in rush-hour 'L' disaster

One train rear-ended another on a curve, and four cars fell off the elevated structure.

I was at home and asleep when this accident happened, on a Friday night.

At midnight I went downtown, to my job on the overnight shift at the Sun-Times. You could see the scene from the windows.

The next morning, I walked across the bridge over the river, to the accident site.

Two cars were leaning against the structure, and two more were lying in the street.

The cranes lifted the car bodies, minus the wheels, onto flatbed trucks. Each 'L' car weighed about 25 tons.

I watched this operation from just about this same spot...maybe even a little bit closer.
