Press Release) Nostalgia in Ice and Snow
Heart-warming winter scenes convey a sense of life in the fifties and sixties
Rüsselsheim. Everything used to be better! Everything? There were definitely proper winters in the middle of the last century, at least according to the nostalgic press and calendar photos published by Opel in the fifties and sixties. The motto of the time was “make the most out of life and discover something new”. The economic miracle fuelled the desire for enhanced mobility and things were on the up once again. The winter images showcase the wide Opel model range and display the photographic style of the period, thereby reflecting the spirit of a dynamic era.
