Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

50’s photo bomb

57 buick century riviera sedanI’m thinking this is a shot of Gerty and Ferd Fowler* with their grandkids, all about to leave Mom & Dad to give them a break for a couple of summer weeks. Why am I guessing that they’re leaving? Look at how happy everyone is. Do you think they’d look like that returning home AFTER a couple weeks with the grandkids? Oh, the car! Right! The car is a fairly rare 1957 Buick Century Riviera Sedan. 

*Written on the back of this photo are the names “Philip, Brian, Nana & Grandpa McCarthy, July 1958”. The names, Gerty and Ferd Fowler, were used to protect the innocent.
