Traffic Jams

Every year, Susan and I attend a Heritage Traffic Jam. And every year I comment at how unrepresentative of the past it actually is. The reason is that some cars were extremely popular in the 50s and 60s due to value for money and mechanical simplicity, but either became deeply unfashionable or were made out of kitchen foil and fell to pieces by 1970.

So here is a true 1960s traffic jam to compare our photos to:


The film is "Weekend" by Jean Luc Goddard and can be seen in full (but very tiny) here
