That's the year I graduated from high school. I drove a '37 Chevy! What a difference. I think my Dad had a Desoto!
A nice shot--- Not exactly elegant, but he's been around for a long, long time.
Hi again! Re your comment on Ocala - I think I told you the story of my dad going from LA to Detroit in 1948 (I think) to buy a new all maroon DeSoto...when he got there he didn't have his wallet - must have been stolen or fallen out of his pocket; so no ID of any kind and no money. Then they couldn't find the car he had ordered so he ended up taking a white one. What a mess. But I loved the DeSoto! I got to drive it a couple of years later!
Reminds me of old shots of American presidents from that time. I don't know who your president would have been then - Eisenhower?
Yes, Dwight Eisenhower was elected in 1953 and served two terms until 1960.
The bus is the only think I notice here that tells me it is a contemporary photograph, not one from fifty years ago.
