United States President Richard Nixon was in the central Pacific recovery area

ship for the historic Apollo 11 lunar landing mission, on July 24, 1969. The
Apollo 11 astronauts are, from left, Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz

The world’s first parking meter, known as Park-O-Meter No. 1, is installed on
the southeast corner of what was then First Street and Robinson Avenue in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. 

The parking meter was the brainchild of Carl C. Magee (below), a lawyer and
newspaper publisher who moved to Oklahoma City from
New Mexico in 1927.
