Back to the fifties, the time that cars were still allowed to be just big and you were wearing gloves behind the wheel. A crystal clear shot of a shiny black Lincoln Zephyr, whose passenger door opens to the rear. Handy! Due to the polished lacquer, this photo shows you more than you initially expect: the front door and the wheel cover reflect everything, in this case also the photographer. A high quality image from a time when photography was more of a handcraft. (Collection Timeview: This is my car, Lincoln Zephyr 1950)
