Pretty Sure That Was A Red Light, Stan March 24, 2018

In the spring of 1958, LIFE photographer Russell Halford took a series of photos of Los Angeles motorists.

Some were irritated.

Some were happy to offer a light.

And some were dangerously mid-beauty routine.

I don’t think it’s going to help.

As an aside, note the nub shown through her window. That’s how we used to lock car doors. You could push them up and down.

  1. Do women still use those eyelash thingies? I remember my Mom used them but haven’t seen them since, we’ll, forever.

    She is probably yelling at Stan about his hat. That is one grand hat, and she sure does look like a Harpy.

    And if you had a coat hanger you could also use those nubs to get into your car if you left the keys in the ignition.

    Great photos. I think you are right about the red light though she could also be ticked because he just told her he lost his job. Or their savings because of his gambling addiction. I currently have an eyelash curler in a drawer but the price tag is still on it. And I bought it two years ago. Will use it eventually.
