From your Wictionary link:

 

 

Usage notes[edit]

This spelling is used in Jamaica, but is antiquated in other places where English is spoken.

 

Was this picture taken Jamaica?  😏  I just thought it was strange; maybe the sign maker failed his class in Hooked on Phonics.

The Sumner Tunnel linked Boston's Financial District/Haymarket Square with East Boston/Logan Airport...it went under Boston "Habah".  This was before Gov Dukakis' "Big Dig".

Nice pic of (I think) a Studebaker and a Packard -

Would love to see a Buick in this setting-

 

Any idea where this photo was taken?

My bad, thought the two tone car on the right was a Buick. No idea where the picture was taken.. looks like a very poor part of town.

Stations must have always been happy to see a Buick pull up - good customers, driving thirsty cars!

Reminds me I have to do my rear shocks on the 54. Botommed out somewhat I put a heavy newlyweds couple on the back seat. Wondering what abou to happen on Wednesday, April the 18th? Circus 🎪? Beautiful clear sky on any town USA.
