    Just by looking at her dress, you can see how morals have decayed since then

    SJH Foto A totally illogical assumption!

    @SJH Foto Imagine if (cough) someone had tens of thousands of photos of young girls wearing shorts in their photo stream ... what might that say
  • Steve PRO 1y

    SJH Foto utter nonsense. Dresses and skirts were shorter than this 10 years before this was taken and dresses this length are still worn now as they have been for the last 80years.

    Hat, high heeled shoes, gloves . . . and two objects on her lap. A purse, maybe? What else?
  • Lindy Green 1y

    I love these vintage pictures.
  • Darkroom Daze PRO 1y

    Every time I look at this photo I wonder what exactly she's sitting on. The bumper (fender) looks as if it has a hard edge, and surely not comfortable to be sitting on for more than a few seconds, yet she seems quite relaxed. Is there also some of kind 'shelf' between the bumper and the car body proper, e.g. for luggage, that she could also be sitting on?
  • Howard33 1y

    Most cars of that period had a luggage rack. An enclosed trunk (boot) became a part of the body in the early 30's. The rack could be rotated from vertical to horizontal, making it a reasonably comfortable seat.

    Howard33 Thanks - that must be the answer then.

    La classe.
  • Richard Spiegelman PRO 7mo

    It does not look like a 1936 Ford. A few years earlier car. Not sure of the make.
  • Hamza Bayram 7mo

    is robust in both parts people do not leave the road
  • Tony Tyler 7mo

    It is a typical photo of the age and before, that in that people in the whole did not smile, and seemed some what wary of the camera and having their photo taken.
