Recently I saw a set of discarded photos and I came across this pic.

I liked the setting, the car, the activity, and then on the pack of the photo was this line in pencil, pictured below. My kind of guys for sure.

Anyone want to guess the make of the car?

Cheers harit

It is so weird to imagine that today's car will be vintage in 50-60 years. Wonder what styling trends would come up by then.

Wonderful pictures none the less!

This would be a 1947 Crosley Convertible

very interesting pictures! Thanks for sharing. I couldn't help but wonder, the cars those days are actually definitions of SUV now. High ground clearance, long bonnet, visible from the driver's seat, running boards, leaf spring suspension and giant wheels. Except 4x4, they meet all the requirements of a modern day SUV. I imagine this was required to navigate roads of those days.

The caption says ( as far as I can make out)

" Kathleen & Ronnie fording arrive on tour in Behar."

Hopefully we'll get to use cars that can hover and fly at low heights with simplified controls (true go anywhere capability) within our lifetime ,

That would make our existing breed of cars feel truly vintage and nostalgic, looking back.

What a lovely shot! These appear to be taxies perhaps?

Nostalgic automotive pictures including our family's cars-bangalore-k-r-road-1930s-tbhp.jpg

Bangalore, K.R.Road in the 1930's.

The street lamps are so reminiscent of the ones that used to light Kowdiar and Museum roads in Trivandrum.
