The Guardian is running a gallery of New York-based images from the collection of film maker Peter Fetterman, original prints of which will be going to auction at Bonhams. A few of these feature cars, so that’s as good a reason as any to post them here as well.
First up is Girls in Windows, New York City, 1960 by Ormond Gigli.
These days you’d just photoshop something like this, but back then this was all in-camera so to speak. And what a great image! The car is a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud – the shot being dated 1960 means this is either a series 1 with straight six or series 2 with V8.
As old_hat notes in the comments, the album was released 1963, but the Bonhams entry notes it was printed later so I’m guessing that’s where the 1966 comes from.
Looks like a Plymouth Valiant or Dodge Lancer behind the Chevrolet. Truck is a Ford?
The headline movie is The Racers with Kirk Douglas. The US poster is rather uninspiring so here’s the French one with cars included. Haven’t seen it yet, but I’ll catch it one day when I’m too old to get out of my recliner.
No cars here, but it’s one of my favourite ever images. Charles James Dresses, New York, 1948 by Cecil Beaton.
