So often with postcards we see a great car just leaving the frame. Why wasn’t the photographer just a second earlier in clicking the shutter release? Or we have just half of the bonnet. Why didn’t he just shift a meter to his left and he’d have got it all in? Or there’s a lamp post dissecting a wonderful piece of automotive art. For goodness sake go stand off to the right! You’ll still get the town hall in.
But here in this postcard of the fascinating Place de la Republique in Lyon the photographer has done an excellent job. He’s caught a complete 1959/60 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB. Only 176 were ever made, so it is even more remarkable.
This, by the way, is the only postcard I have with a Ferrari in it (so far).
