1953 Mercury


Image Courtesty Andrew Hobson/Allen Cornwall

Today’s photo comes courtesy of reader Andrew Hobson and his grandfather Allen Cornwall. It comes from a Ford of Canada promotional postcard. The caption on the back reads as follows:

    The graceful lines of this 1953 Mercury convertible stand
    out under the sweeping curve of the Internationally
    famous Windsor-Detroit Ambassador Bridge which spans the
    world’s busiest waterway. Each year thousands of visitors
    to Windsor see the vast manufacturing plants of Ford of
    Canada on regularly conducted tours, Monday through
    Friday, at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

Now my question is who are the models? Probably daughters of local Ford executives? Anyone have any stories their Grandma told them about being on a postcard 🙂
