Every once in a while an vintage photograph comes along that is a perfect representative of the era that it was taken in and this image taken in Houston, Texas certainly fits the bill.
This shot was taken in the early evening during the late-1950s by a man named Strickland who operated the Auto Exchange, a used car dealership located at 3500 Washington Avenue in Houston, Texas. The picture contains a colorful view of the vehicles Strickland was offering for sale and the inventory at Walker Motors one of his competitors across the street.
Note the unusual movement of either a string of light bulbs or streamers above the front line of cars on Walker’s sales lot while the photograph was being exposed. At the time it does not appear to have been windy as the tree limbs and leaves in the background are not moving and neither are the lights and spinners at the Auto Exchange.
