Snapshot with Car

Description
Photograph albums and amateur snapshots reflect the importance of cherished family memories. Casual and personal, these snapshots document everyday life and generations of families. Dating back to the invention of the automobile at the beginning of the 20th century, those who could afford cars often had their pictures taken next to the vehicle. Here two men are seen leaning against a car parked by a curb.
