Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

Laundro Matt


I’ve had some favorites of mine on this site in the past, and you can put this one right up there with the best of them. I wish I had its negative. Such an interesting photo.

Artistically, it’s got all the qualities I look for in old car photos — balanced light and shadow, composition, etc. Most importantly, it’s got some sort of story in there, somewhere — there’s hanging laundry, a garbage can. a 1948 Chevrolet, and an old gentleman perched comfortably between two of its bumper guards. A candid moment yet clearly posed. A slice of American life, forever frozen in time. I hope I find more that are this good.
