Just a short video of three vehicles that would have been a common sight in mid town Manhattan or the Chicago loop circa 1950-1960.  In the video, you’ll see a  Checker Model A4 produced from 1949-1953, a Checker Model A8 produced from 1956-1958 and a Dekalb Model REA Forward Van produced from 1957-1969.
