Parked Cars Under Streetlamps in 1970s New York City[1] Photographer: Langdon Clay (America)
Description Cars were an indispensible aspect of twentieth-century culture, both for their utility and aesthetics. From 1974 to 1976, American photographer Langdon Clay documented the cars parked along the streets of New York and Hoboken, New Jersey during his nocturnal city wanderings. These gorgeous cars were more than just transportation: they were symbols of a golden period in America, where oil was bountiful and electricity was cheap.

Shot in Kodachrome with a Leica and deftly lit with then new sodium vapor lights, the photos feature a distinct array of makes and models set against the gritty details of their surrounding urban and architectural environments, and occasionally the ghostly presence of people.

The images have been compiled into a book titled “Cars — New York City, 1974-1976”, a must-have for any car lover.
