West Side Elevated from 1929-1930 with it's 2x3 lanes was perhaps the first motorway-type?

Off course it was, the borders were blocked, military was stationed on entire border. During the war in Yugoslavia military aeroplanes of Yugoslav army were violating Austrian airspace on daily basis, that is one of the main reasons Austria ordered Eurofighter aeroplanes.

Why the Customs signs between A and YU was in German and French and not in German and Slovenian/Serb-Croatian?

French was/is used as "lingua franca" for road signs and German of course because it is Austria. In ex Yu french is still used.

Ahead of the blue Peugeot 505 you see a SIMCA 1503. Today it's a very rare vehicle.

Very thanks! very interesting the sign in all the languages of former-YU!
I've been in SLO, HR and BiH (Croatian part) in 2007... I've seen that the French is also used, also then (I think) today is more used English as commercial/international Language...
Although it seems to me that in former YU there is more liking for German and Russian!

I wouldn't say that, German maybe in border area with Austria and Russian nowhere, English has primacy.

What a changing world. 20 years ago there was the army protecting the border so that nobody crossed it... and now you can do your Sunday walk from one country to the other without beeing bothered by anyone.

That wasn't the Iron Curtain... especially not in 1993.
