I’d love to know when this picture was taken, it’d probably be safe to guess mid to late 1950s but if you happen to know when, where or why, shoot us a message on Twitter here or Facebook here. It’s quite likely that it was on a promotional shoot before its introduction to the American market but as with many of these older images, it’s impossible to know for certain.
