I found this postcard in a charity shop among fifty other relics from someone’s trip to Switzerland and northern Italy.
The car is 1969 Lancia Flavia saloon. That shadow is a little unfortunate. Can anyone say what the car in the background might be?

I’m such a car nerd I can tell you it’s a Fiat 1500 straight away.
Hold on Mark! It could be a 1300!
Is that grey car, even further back, an Autobianchi Bianchina Berlina?
Thanks for that. It’s a lovely card.
Swap the Italian cars for BMC’s finest, make the clouds slightly greyer and this could be Leicester or any other UK city in the 1970s. “Modern” architecture is a curse.
