Art Deco 2015 - Vintage Car Parade (part 3)

Next in the Parade came 4 air hostess dressed in some of the uniforms Air New Zealand has used over that time.   Air New Zealand celebrates 75 years since its first flight to Australia (and then the rest of the world) in 1940.  



Look at the boots on this air hostess

Art Deco 2015 - Vintage Car Parade (part 1)

 In my opinion this was a great parade comprising of  400 - 500 cars.  It was an hour long.  I would love to see Napier's Christmas Parade get as good as this :)
This car once belonged to Clark Gables wife (Carole Lambard) she was the highest paid actress in the 1930s
