Full titles read: "The Car Parking Machine - A vertical elevator is the very latest idea to overcome that City Car Parking difficulty."
Chicago, United States of America.
Various shots show an amazing automatic car parking machine. A car is driven into a compartment at the base of the machine. There are numerous compartments in the machine, and they are moving constantly in a vertical direction, like a car elevator. The machine takes up the same amount of space on the ground as six cars, and stretches high into the sky, holding a total of 48 cars.
Someone comes to pick up their car; the attendant turns a dial and the compartments are rotated to bring the man's car down to the bottom. Another attendant backs the car out of the compartment for the owner.
