Rubbernecking, 30s Style

People

On our webly wanders recently we stumbled across some absolute proof positive that rubbernecking isn’t the modern phenomenon that it has been supposed to be.

These shots, scalped from the Boston Public Library Archive (Via one of our fave blogs ACL) is a fascinating record of how a good car wreck has always drawn a goodly crowd.

We love looking at pics like this, and considering these are images of our Great Grandfather’s generation, it always leaves us feeling a little wistful about the passing of time.

Buckle up and wince and laugh at some of these vintage scrapes and calamities.
