Vintage Photo Tuesday Vintage Car edition

It’s Vintage Photo Tuesday again (everyone claps with excitement) and this week’s edition is vintage photos from the 1920’s-1950’s of folks with their cars. Why their cars? Well purchasing a vehicle 50, 60+ years ago was a much bigger deal then it is today, so owners (or their family & friends) wanted to document their hard work or good fortune for all to see!

We begin with a 1930’s romance and a car.

Cars from the moment they were created, became focal points in many a romance and this image is an excellent example of that connection.

This is how you let people know you were divorced in 1930’s. This image makes me laugh, this man was clearly very happy to be free of his wife. It’s just him and his car now.

Fenders sure came in handy for sitting on for photos, didn’t they? This is a cute photo, I love the woman’s 1940’s style and the photo bombing kid is funny.
