Push-button Parking (Oct, 1946)
PRESS a button and park your car! The Park-O-Mat automatically places an auto in any desired stall of a garage. With it, more cars can be parked in less space in less time by fewer attendants.
At the garage entrance arms grip the front and rear bumpers and slide the car to an elevator. This stops at the proper floor; arms slide the car into the stall. Another button reverses the process, bringing the car to the entrance in less than a minute. Since the car does not run under its own power, the owner can lock it when he leaves.
The Los Angeles manufacturer points out that the Park-O-Mat can be installed in lots too narrow for ordinary parking.
