Vintage caravan picture

Can anyone identify this picture? Where it was taken, and any other information relating to it?

It showed up in a group of station wagon based pictures on another forum, with no information attached other than it shows station wagons towing trailers.

How beautiful! Somewhere... Norman Rockwell is smiling.

(BTW: if you could post the other site where you found this, I'd love to see if I could trace it back and find a higher res version.) Thanks!

Turns out the picture, and those below, are from the 1956 Europe Caravan.

Always fun to look at. Some of these may have been posted in earlier threads but I couldn't find them, nor do I remember the whole set being shown in the past. Any of these trailers in the hands of Airforums members?

Brad - I was pointed to the pictures from a post of the first picture at Wagons in vintage Street scenes - Page 347 - Station Wagon Forums

And that put me to this site with all the pictures showing up Vintage shots from days gone by! - Page 565 - THE H.A.M.B.

Sadly these are all that are posted on the HAMB site. Once I get into that thread over there I'm lost for hours going through hundreds of pages of pictures. Same goes for the ones on the Stationwagons forum. Then, of course, the wife accuses me of doing nothing to which I have to admit that yes, that's because I wasn't finished doing nothing yesterday or the days before that, and when I'm done doing nothing, then I'll do something. Maybe. You get my drift here.

But hopefully others will be able to provide more pictures of this caravan, and others. And I'll keep looking as well.

Thanks so much - working on new Airstream-themed posters and these are inspirational gems.

Very cool pictures Barry. Thanks for posting for us to enjoy. It's odd that they're driving on the right side of the road. By that I actually mean the right side as opposed to the left side as most countries do in Europe.

Good thing I do not own a vintage station wagon or I would get even less accomplished. A few hours vanished somewhere this week looking at vintage scooters on youtube

Credit for these photos to the Helen Byam Schwamborn estate and are in addition to what is shown here. Pee Wee Schwamborn posted them previously. I do not know if they were taken by Helen.

I love the last picture. The car, an Isetta?, probably has less power than the guy on the bicycle had . Thanks for posting them, and the recognition/credit for who "owns" the originals. I don't know where the poster on the HAMB found them.

Pee Wee is an outstanding resource for information. Looking forward to seeing him again at Baker City. There will be enough photos and paraphernalia there for those of us seeking more on vintage Airstreams that we'll be in overload mode.

I love that one. D asks every day what are you going to do today? Now I know what to say. Thanks. Sal.
