(Jackie’s Note: 1967-68, as I remember (a long time ago now!) the entrance from the car park at Pompeii was on the left. 
Having bought a ticket, the way into Pompeii was up the slope (where people are walking up, in photo) and then through the Antiquarium and exiting from the door at VIII.1.4, into the excavations half-way up through the Porta Marina).

1939. Ticket for Strada Automobilistica Vesuvio. Photo courtesy of Rick Bauer.
The road was built by the Matrone brothers to reach the Great Cone of Vesuvius from the Boscotrecase slope.
The Matrone road was built by the engineer Gennaro Matrone, following the Royal Concession of 13 June 1892. 
Destroyed and almost erased by the violent eruptions of Vesuvius several times, the road was rebuilt in 1918, when it became paved and the cars could cover the 8.5 Km to the piazzale at an altitude of one thousand meters. 
In 1924 Aurelio Matrone had a house built for the caretaker and the ticket office (now the forestry station).
After nearly thirty years of work, various destructions made by sudden lava flows and subsequent reconstructions, the road was inaugurated on 4 January 1927.
It is now a walking track in the Vesuvius National Park.
