In September 1960 a south London family received this postcard of Los Angeles Harbor Freeway at night.
The Freeway was described on the reverse of the card as:
…a vital segment of the fabulous Super-Highway System, connecting all parts of the vast Los Angeles Basin. One of the world’s most heavily traveled highways.
The message on the card read:
How about trying your hand on roads like these? This is a terrific city, very prosperous. Temperature has been 90 degrees today. Had a fine week-end in N. York with J.T. Jr. Sent your love to Mr Midgley and got a picture of him. Went to Chicago for two days to see Bob Bacon. Please excuse scribble.
