Carspotters' Challenge #47--Bear With Us
This is the "City Center" TraveLodge motel in Vancouver, BC. The date is given as 1970.
My family stayed at TraveLodges a lot when we were on our epic road-trip vacations in the Plymouth Belvedere. For some reason, there was no TraveLodge (or at least none we knew about) anywhere close to Youngstown, which gave them some novelty value. Also, Mom liked the sleepwalking bear trademark, and Dad had some deep-seated aversion to Holiday Inns and Howard Johnsons that he never quite explained.
There are some interesting things in the parking lot. What catches your fancy?
