Vintage Snapshots: 1956 Mercury Monterey – Outdoors Day

What do we have here? Someone is planning to spend a nice time outdoors and to do so in style with this 1956 Mercury. The trunk is stuffed with goods; there’s one folding table and numerous other items. Even the camera setup seems ready to come along for the ride.

Looks like a stop along the way. Is there something missing for lunch? Some snack? A beverage of some kind? Better get those before leaving town.

Nice outing, isn’t it? Looks like old-time friends, or maybe relatives. In any case, lunch looks to have been good. And there are a few nice rose bushes in the trunk, surely headed to a new home.


These lovely Kodachromes come from the elektroSpark Flickr page.
