Vintage Car With Newlyweds – Old Photo 1940
This is an old 1940s photo of newlyweds in a vintage car (by today’s standards). Although quite a modern car at the time. Perhaps somewhere in British era Bombay or Calcutta. Seated in the back are two seemingly newlywed couples. Not entirely sure about the car’s make perhaps an Austin or a Morris maybe a Fiat. But all the same a beautiful convertible.
See children sitting on the sideboard, the extra tyre on the side the, air horn, and the two-tone colour of the vehicle. It comes with semi spoked wheels. Possibly zamindar family’s wedding. See also the cozy home with intricate grills visible in the background, unfortunately, these beautiful homes are making way for more modern homes.
Did you know- Indian Maharajas were the biggest buyers of Rolls Royce before India’s independence.
