Wednesday/ paying for parking (the old way)

We went to Columbia City on Wednesday night for a beer and a bite, and lucked out with the last parking spot in the lot across from our regular ‘watering hole’.  I love that lot’s parking fee ‘machine’ .. hanging in there, defiant, retro and analog, with no such fancy tech as accepting payment by mobile phone or debit card.   Paper money and coins, stuffed into a slot !

The instructions may be fading, but they are still legible!  The pay box comes complete with a tool attached to stuff any old folded banknotes into the matching slot for your parking bay .. and if you ran out of numbers down by #60 because you are parked in bay #61, #62 or #63, go back up and use #1, #2 or #3.
