Vintage Photos of Auto Polo, c.1910s

Automobile polo or Auto polo was a motorsport invented in the United States with rules and equipment similar to equestrian polo but using automobiles instead of horses. The sport was popular at fairs, exhibitions and sports venues across the United States and several areas in Europe from 1911 until the late 1920s; but it was dangerous and carried the risk of injury and death to the participants and spectators.

Scene at Volkswagen’s Main Plant, Wolfsburg, Germany, July 1951

Most people who have ever owned a Volkswagen Beetle or, say, an early, split-windshield VW bus or even a Karmann Ghia will swear that those uncomfortable, relatively bare-bones vehicles were among the favorite cars they’ve ever driven. They’re not for everyone, of course — but for a certain breed of driver, the old-school VWs offered a rare combination of reliability, ease of maintenance and, most importantly, personality that so many other mass-produced automobiles lacked.

The story of Volkswagen, meanwhile, is among the most fascinating and, in some regards, most troubling of any car manufacturer in existence. One well-documented example of VW’s paradoxical lore: in its early days, during World War II, Volkswagen used slave labor (the company has admitted as much) to build vehicles for the Nazi war effort; decades later, the archetypal Volkswagens, the Beetle and the T1 bus, would become the four-wheeled symbols of the “peace and love” movement of the 1960s. From Hitler to hippies: not many other companies, automobile or otherwise, can lay claim to that sort of bizarre corporate narrative.

Here, a series of photos made by LIFE photographer Walter Sanders at the company’s famous Wolfsburg plant in 1951. A refugee from Hitler’s Germany himself, who fled his native country the same year VW began making cars, Sanders captures in these pictures of the factory and the factory workers a nation in the process of recreating itself. Here, in black and white, is a portrait of the labor and mechanization that would again make Germany  one of the world’s most powerful economies before the end of the century.

Beautiful Vintage Camera Adverts

Because today’s high-tech and fast-paced world has made it easier to find and learn about cameras, we don’t usually find elaborate printed camera ads anymore. Several decades ago, people can only find information about cameras mostly in printed materials such as newspapers and magazines While most of today’s camera ads are quite plain and straight-forward, vintage camera ads of decades past evidently leaned towards a more creative and communicative approach. Potential buyers are drawn to a particular analogue beauty through unique illustrations, catchy taglines, and persuasive descriptions.

Many of these vintage camera ads are as classic as the cameras themselves, still able to mesmerize camera-loving people. Today, many vintage enthusiasts and camera collectors are looking for prints of these ads to include their collections and photography memorabilia. Why don’t we take a look at some of them now to see if they can still work their charm and get us to go on an analogue camera hunt?

Young Bob Dylan

Robert Allen Zimmerman, aka Bob Dylan (1941) is an American musician, singer-songwriter, music producer, artist, and writer. He has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s when he was an informal chronicler and a seemingly reluctant figurehead of social unrest.

A number of Dylan’s early songs, such as “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin‘”, became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements. Leaving his initial base in the culture of folk music behind, Dylan’s six-minute single “Like a Rolling Stone” radically altered the parameters of popular music in 1965. His recordings employing electric instruments attracted denunciation and criticism from others in the folk movement.

See images of a much younger Dylan below.
