Ford Greyhound Radiator Cap
Photograph - Photography
When I first saw this beautiful bit of art I thought it was a hood ornament. In fact it is a classic, Greyhound radiator cap.
Oh how I wish I lived during this time of beautiful design! A time when ornament was ordinary. Think about old building and the carvings, the gargoyles, the bricabrack. Think of all the artists who hand a hand in making nearly everything.
This radiator cap is an excellent example of what I'm talking about. The sleek lines of the greyhound suggest speed and power. The perfect mascot for this dynamo of the day.
A great piece of masculine art. I can see this in a cigar bar. Perfect!
