I’m a sucker for a period film. When they’re done well, I can’t help but watch them over and over. My latest obsession, which I’m viewing repeatedly on Netflix, is Howard’s End starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson. For whatever reason, I love this tragic yet somewhat light-hearted film. Though it deals with some tough issues in Britain in the early 1900s, Emma’s character, Meg, has a happy attitude that continues to charm me.
Most good period films will show the conveyances of the day. Vintage cars are one of the easiest ways to set the stage. We can almost name the era by the look of the automobile.
Today, just for fun, I’m sharing several photos of vintage cars. How far do they take you back? I remember my brother driving a car we called The Green Bomb. It had belonged to my grandpa and was my brother’s first car. We all remember it fondly though none of us has a photo of it. Wish I could have found a pic on Pixabay, but alas. No such luck.
Enjoy the photos and the memories they happen to conjure, whether in real life or from a favorite film.
