Larkspur Eldorado: 1955

Larkspur Eldorado: 1955

1955 Cadillac Eldorado, photographed in the fall of that year by the nine-year-old me, then at the height of my kidhood car fascination. You can tell the part of the car that fascinated me most by how I aimed the camera. I also talked my brother into taking a Kodachrome slide of it. We were on one of the walks we were wont to take around our home town of Larkspur, California. This shot also captures, at the left, a significant moment in Larkspur history: the building of the first homes in the first major post-war housing development, Hillview Gardens. The houses sold in the low 20Ks. The following year the first kids from there started showing up in my classes at Larkspur-Corte Madera School. View full size.
