1970 - Bucuresti, Brasov

Inca un set de poze color, dintr-o colectie americana, aratand Bucuresti si Brasov. Filmul care ruleaza la cinematograful Patria e din 1965 si pozele sunt clar mai noi decat asta. Se vad Dacii 1300; sunt chiar doua Forduri Capri (unul rosu cu numere de ambasada, altul alb in parcarea Casei Sfatului). Totusi  dupa moda e clar ca anii 70 nu patrunsesera inca. In plus, Inter-ul (deschis in 1971) e abia in constructie. Si intr-adevar, pozele suntd in octombrie 1970. Mercedes-ul Ponton (daca vad corect, cu numere 1-B-trei cifre) e pe departe preferata mea, probabil amintidu-mi de doua epave in zona copilariei, pe langa care intotdeauna ma plimbam, fascinat.
Another set of colour photos with Bucharest and Brasov. Dating them is rather interesting: the film shwoing - The Sound of Music - appeared in 1965 and the photos are clearly more recent. You can see two Ford Capris (one red, one white in Brasov) and the odd Dacia 1300. But the fashions are hardly of the 70s, and the Intercontinental Hotel, which opened in 1971, is still shown as under construction. And indeed the images - from an American collection - turn out to be from October 1970. The Mercedes Ponton is by far my favourite of the lot. When young, I used to be fascinated by two derelict examples close to my house, so I still retain a soft spot for them.

  1. Vad ca in toate fotografiile pe care le-ai postat in care apar automobile Warszsawa, acestea au culoarea gri. Si de data aceasta in parcarea Casei Sfatului, apare o astfel de masina avand aceiasi culoare.

  2. Nu chiar toate .... in prima poza e una albastra! (Sau botul ei!)

    Warszawa gri in poza e taxiu, posibil toate taxiurile din Bv erau acest gri deschis intr- o anumita perioada. O poza din 65, totusi, arata o Volga de o culoare mai inchisa. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_LsNV-g_PkR8/S_BrqoCea9I/AAAAAAAAAOA/mClNlKInZM8/s1600/DSCF4776.jpg

    Cele doua epave nu erau cumva pe langa Gradina Botanica?

  4. Epavele de Mercedes erau in Piatra Neamt langa magazinul Agricola. Au stat acolo pana la sfarsitul anilor 90.

    1. Exact aceeasi situatie si in aceeasi perioada a existat in Bucuresti, langa Gradina Botanica. Erau doua Mercedesuri Ponton gri. Unul era in stare destul de buna, celalalt mai putin; era clar ca apartineau amandoua aceluiasi proprietar, care-l cumparase pe cel in stare mai proasta pentru a-l reconditiona pe celalalt. Si pe mine aceste doua masini ma fascinau. Dupa multa vreme, au disparut cu desavarsire.

    2. Probabil sunt conserve .... desi exista pe putin 15-20 Pontoane in tara, unele chiar in stare acceptabila.
