Bring on the Show Girls
So, we’re well into show season – and there’s no car show in Britain quite like this weekend’s Silverstone Grand Prix. Before we head off to the petrolheaded version of Glastonbury we were thinking about the changing nature and aesthetic of show girls. Call them booth babes, trolley dollies – whatever – we stumbled across this excellent selection of images from various car shows in the 1960’s and 1970’s, shot in square format by a photographer whose name is lost to time.
We love the way that time and space morph the style and aesthetic that sell motor cars – but we’re also trying to work out which car is which.
Any ideas appreciated….
