Old photos are fascinating.


This time its automobile crashes from 1930's Boston.


I doubt the driver had any need of a laxative on that day!



















I love this one, I feel like I should give it a great big hug
























If this were to happen today the health and safety brigade would clear everyone within a three mile radius








If you like looking at old photos and you havent already seen them follow the link in my sigy.

Great photos!

I wonder what the survivability rate was....

Good question! I'm amazed some of those vehicles were able to travel fast enough to have a crash!

Those that could go fast probably killed the driver. Many vehicles back then had a wooden chassis, thats why some of them have broken in half.

Those were interesting. Most of them were pretty straight forward how they happened. The one that really sticks out for me was the first. How did they manage that one?

This one?



I'd have to guess and say maybe (as its a small truck) it was loaded and heavy enough to push through the wall at low speed, otherwise I dont know.

I'm no mind reader, but I imagine he was wondering how that truck got to the top floor of an obviously mutli-story building, as am I...

I assumed it was a multi-story car park?

If not then I am as baffled as he

That's the one. Did they have parking garages then?

It is amazing how much safer cars are nowadays with airbags, crumple zones, etc. Consider none of those cars would have had seat belts or any other real crash protection.

The same people are still driving. They're just older.

I suppose it's all relative.



Nader could not have imagined that his legacy would fade antemortem.

I'm guessing there were no driving while intoxicated laws in those days. I'm sure a few counted themselves lucky if they walked away with no more than a limp and some stitches.
