Once upon a time Vickie Lester went to visit a movie location in Atlanta…

a garage 1961
Here’s a true story, I was once in the parking garage, way underground, at the corporate headquarters of Coca-Cola in Atlanta and driving down, down, down, into a cavern tinted green with florescent light I passed a fleet of white forty foot long trucks with black lettering on them, and painted on the side was the word, MEMBRANES…

The image, by the way, is not Coca-Cola in Atlanta but a parking garage in Los Angeles circa 1961.

      Perhaps they’re one and the same 😉 And, oh my stars and whiskers – I don’t like to think of the words wastewater and beverage together…

    Dearest V
    If all car parks looked like that, one wouldn’t mind motor cars so much… maybe!
    Membranes… hmmmh. Perhaps it was art?

      It’s the best kind of 60’s architecture, and apparently the car I was pining for after I saw the image is a horror. As to the membranes they’re some kind of filtration product – but wouldn’t it have been nice if they called them that?

        Oh dear… but then all cars are horrors to me… scary brutish things!
        I had a feeling that that’s what membranes might be, but hoped it might be more exciting… hey ho.

        Modern cars that – in terms of design… look like they were extruded through a tube!

      That’s the Corvair! I was thinking what a sweet looking car it was… Ouch!

      • April 18, 2013

        Yes, indeed. Old Ralphie made a name for himself with the Corvair, didn’t he?

    How strange, Vickie. That sounds like one of those moments when you’d expect Rod Serling to appear and that all too familiar music to start playing. Bwahaha!

      All I could think was, where’s my camera! I’ve never seen a truck like that above ground… They must shift them at night… Oh, it just gets worse and worse!

      Andy! Thank you – how are you?
