Old family snapshots are often more interesting for the vintage automobiles they show than for the half-remembered faces of Uncle George and Aunt Ethel.
Here’s a collection of 67 photos from the 1950s compiled by the website yesterdaytoday.net, which are pure nostalgia not only for the American cars depicted but for the street scenes, the storefronts and the clothing styles of the era. Some cool hair, too.
The video is nothing fancy, just a whole of bunch of snapshots – the kind you might have hidden away in the bottom drawer of the dresser – of people on trips to the beach, in their own driveways, even boastful pictures of somebody’s new set of wheels.
There are also street scenes and parking lots showing colorful arrays of the big, beautiful cars that folks drove back then.
