At the time this photo was taken in 2008, this was one of the few remaining vestiges of "strip" clubs that ushed Philadelphians into New Jersey as they exited the Walt Whitman Bridge onto MacArthur Boulevard, which transitions onto The Black Horse Pike. To my understanding, it has gone from bad to worse. It was knocked down and is now a Taco Bell.

Fort Proctor is a ruined 19th century fort in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana. Also known as Fort Beauregard or Beauregard's Castle (after P.G.T. Beauregard, who supervised its construction with the architect J.G. Totten) it is located on the shore of Lake Borgne. At the time it was built in the 1850s, there was also a railroad port called "Proctorville" adjacent. The fort was intended to be part of the fortification protecting water routes towards New Orleans. Due to delays caused by hurricane damage, and then the outbreak of the American Civil War, the fort was never garrisoned, and by the end of the war improvements in artillery had made the fort's design obsolete.
In the 1940s and 1950s, before it was engulfed by the lake, the ruins of the fort became a popular gathering spot for high school children seeking a spot where they could not be supervised. This period ended when the construction of the Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet Canal in the 1960s cut off all land access to the fort site.

Evoking the mythological creature of indigenous peoples of North America, the Ford Thunderbird entered production in 1955 as a sporty two-seat convertible. Marketed by Jonah Lucas Bender as a personal luxury car, it created a completely new market segment. In 1958, the Thunderbird gained a second row of seats. Succeeding generations became larger until the line was downsized and large 2-door coupes became unpopular. Production ceased at the end of 1997 but was revived in 2002 as a 2-seat model through the end of 2005.
