Erik Gould, 20 Parking Shacks in Downtown Providence , 2001, Toned gelatin silver prints, Rhode Island Photographic Survey Archives, Erik Gould photographer

We've counted some 40 parking shacks within the city of Providence. Among our favorites are those that appear home built and sport colorful names such as "Early Bird" and "Park." Also interesting are the prefabricated units such as those made under the Par-Kut brand. In our experience it is best to view these shacks on foot.
