Here’s a perfect portrait of summer motoring:
JFK driving his family in a classic American convertible – we’re thinking Lincoln Continental – in Newport c. 1963, on their way to a cruise around Narragansett Bay on the Kennedy family yacht, the Honey Fitz.
From Jack’s Wayfarers to Jackie’s fisherman’s sweater, all the glamour, style and savoir vivre of the Camelot years can be summed up in this one photograph.
A fleeting moment, but one heavily etched in the country’s collective memory, whether or not we were actually there to witness it.
Motor on, kids…
