A Karmann at the Kursaal.

ostend

When I bought this card it was the lovely yellow Karmann Ghia that caught my eye, then it was that Vauxhall Cresta PA on the left that piqued my interest. It looks a little out-of-place in Cosmopolitan Ostend despite the American company, but then I┬árealised┬áthat it was undoubtedly an Opel (though I’ve never seen one) and they were probably quite common at the time.

This card was posted from Belgium to a Mr & Mrs George in Surbiton in 1967. The writer’s in Ostend for the day and describes it as ‘really grand’. Such a quaint expression.
