car-and-driver

A classy looking man and his classy looking automobile are the subject of this vintage real photo postcard produced by a photographer named Herr Wurm in Schoningen, Germany. The car looks new and is absolutely beautiful.The owner of the auto must love the car. He is showing his affection by putting one foot on the running board and placing his hand against the car’s door. He looks quite stylish with his white coat, dark hat, and driving gloves. There is something sticking out of his coat pocket. It may be a wallet and you can be sure that he had to be somewhat wealthy to afford this luxurious car. The town of Schoningen is in the district of Helmstedt, in Lower Saxony, Germany. The community is known for its mining of lignite. The writing on the reverse of this photo postcard is dated 1934. The postcard is not postmarked and was likely mailed inside of an envelope.
