On a recent trip to Houston we visited the Museum of Fine Arts as part of birthday celebrations for Husband and Son. While many exhibits prohibit photography, Son was able to take photos of one particular current exhibit; here are a few that he took.
Sculptured in Steel: Art Deco Automobiles and Motorcycles, 1929-1940
One would have to have the proper clothes to drive around in this one as the vintage poster below (part of the exhibit) illustrates.
This one reminded me of a convertible version of an Airstream travel trailer.
This Indian Motorcycle Chief, 1940 was Husband’s favorite.
People were even dressed fashionably in advertisements back then.
Husband liked this KJ Motorcycle, 1930 and so would Batman.
Husband and I had a great time imagining what it would have been to ride around in this Twelve Model 1106 or to have been chauffeured around in it. Either way, champagne would surely have been appropriate!
This photo of Model 810 “Armchair” Beverly Sedan, 1936 was taken from the museum’s website.
This is the inside of the Model 810 “Armchair” Beverly Sedan, 1936 and also from the museum’s website.
The exhibit will be at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston through May 30.
