16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Abandoned Beauty

We came across this old 50's Fiat lost in time, while driving around one day. I told my husband that this car would be perfect for a photo session. My daughter jumped right on board and offered to be my model. We believe this car has been in this location since the 50's or 60's. It is located next to an old theater that has been around for 99 years. It was recently closed, but the new owners are revamping it into an event space. This car was "unearthed" when they tore down an old garage wall in the back of the property. I assume it will be gone soon, which is so sad, but what a piece of history we found! Sitting there the same as it was 60+ years ago, when I imagine it was left there.
