Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

That kid’s in her mid 60’s now.

49 plymouth 256

Not many cameras from years ago had through-the-lens viewing – certainly not your average camera. You had to compose your shot through a separate viewfinder located on the camera close to the lens. It worked out fine in most every case but it does help explain why people in pictures from way back had heads cut off (viewfinder on top of lens) or subjects off-centered (viewfinder at the side of the lens). This guy got it perfect! The entire car, bumper-to-bumper, and top to bottom in frame! Now, had his wife and child not insisted on standing in front of  his 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe, this photo would have been poster material!
