In this section I've posted some obscure images from the 20s, 30, and 40s of automobiles, snapshots from people's everyday lives. By the time the 30s ended, cars were looking much more like they do today, as design was getting figured out. They offered mobility never before available.
In the ones that follow, I have no idea of what the circumstances are, but thought they capture well, nuances of the Age.
