Message from a Hostel –Parking Meters

Time is Up

Alistair what is all this studying you are doing?  Nora it is for the exam I have to take later today for a job with the city council.  Did you know Nora, that Holger George Thuesen and Gerald A. Hale designed the first working parking meter, the Black Maria.  And the world’s first installed parking meter was in Oklahoma City USA on July 16, 1935.

That’s very interesting Alistair don’t let all of those interesting facts clutter you little head.  Nora I have to know this stuff if I am going to sit the test.

Later that day

Well Alistair how did you get on in your exam?  I didn’t pass it Nora here is my test paper. It seems they did not think my answers would suit if I was dealing with the general public.
