Driving in NYC in 1940's on YouTube


Recommended Posts

Nice video.  Thanks for posting.  Interesting to note the number of cars with white wall tires.  Many of the upscale cars in the video (Cadillac, Lasalle, Packard, etc.,) had them, and even some not-so-upscale ones did as well.  I'm not saying they all did, but enough for them to be an obviously normal accessory.

 With all the traffic rules not being observed, I am surprised that at least they were on the right side of the street!

So what year do you think this was filmed? Late 40's?   Not many pre= 1936 cars .Is it because it's NYC?   A different  discussion concluded that people only kept their cars for 4 or 5 years.  I'm driving a 13 year old car.  What a boring film this would make if filmed today.
