Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

Laundro Matt

1948-chevy

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.
