This street scene in St. Louis, Missouri, taken in the early 1950s, shows us the busy intersection of Vandeventer (US 50) and Market (US 40) looking northeast. The brick building on (left) hand side, is the Fruehauf Trailer Company factory branch. On the (right) hand side is a Mohawk Tire store.
Stop by The Old Motor to see two enlargements which show the rest of this interesting photo.

Mrs. Split Personality and the 1954 Nash Ambasador: This is only one of many photos we have of a model dressed in half winter clothes and a polka dotted bathing suit, along with a new 1954 Nash in posed promotional photos. It appears that the photos were taken to demonstrate how the Nash was comfortable in all seasons. See many more @ theoldmotor.com
Thank you, David. They are interesting photographs and links. The Nash Ambassador is a bit player in numerous episodes of the TV series 'The Adventures of Superman' from my youth and seems so familiar... despite the fact I've never seen one.
Dymaxion : The Car for a Future That Never Happened: Architect, author and futurist R. Buckminster Fuller coined the word “Dymaxion” to describe a global concept of design by combining the words dynamic, maximum, and tension. When he applied the concept to the “modern” motorcar, the result is seen here. On The Old Motor We have many photos along with more information and a video about the Dymaxion including all of the interesting patent drawings of the flathead Ford powered machine.
