Harold’s Club Pigeon-Hole Parking Garage

Harold's Club Pigeon-Hole Parking Garage

Built in 1954, this is the famous “Pigeon-Hole Parking” Garage of Harold’s Club in Reno, Nevada. You’d simply drive in and a huge forklift-like mechanism would lift your car up two or three stories into a “pigeon hole” for safe keeping till you came back to claim it.
