Along with our disappearing yesterdays, and vintage automobiles, are some of the ways we once enjoyed doing most everything in our cars. Meaning period architecture that was created for people and their automobiles to enjoy going to the movies without leaving their cars behind. Sadly most of these iconic examples have been torn down as the the interest in doing so faded, because people discovered they could actually get out of their cars, or the romance of doing near everything in the car began to fade.
Many of these drive-ins featured fabulous murals, such as the Van Nuys Drive-in, and of course the El Monte. Both reflecting the Mexican influence, and heritage of early California. Both are represented in this collection.
