I happened to make the photos in this post due to my son Aaron, who drove past this scene a half-hour before. He phoned to report that there were a number of old cars parked in front of the Fox Theatre. The cars were Model A Fords.
The Fox Theatre is a Riverside landmark and was the scene of the premier of Gone With The Wind. Nearing the end of a recent renovation, the Fox is due to be opened on January 22 with a concert by Sheryl Crow.
The Model A was the first car to have a windshield of safety glass.The powerplant, a water-cooled L-head four cylinder displaced 201 cubic inches. This engine gave the Model A 40 horsepower.
