With congested cities trying to promote metro rail, bike share and other forms of mass transit over driving and parking downtown, this photo of an old-school parking meter in Palo Alto, Pennsylvania hearkens back to a different time.

Do you remember coin-operated parking meters that looked like this? When did you last see one in your travels?
