Thanks.  It was raining (lightly), but the contrast got boosted in the posting.  The pavement was wet but not flooded,  Just occasional puddles.  See previous photos for an idea of the weather.

A very extensive collection from 1952 - remember some of the locations as a kid as we moved back to Baltimoe (Catonsville) in 1955.

found and repaired (attempted to repair?) a scan of a side view of Semi 5622 pictured earlier.

I also see that two-mn semis had all four doors double doors, while the exit-only door on one-man semis was single.
