Shorpy Saturday – Tailgate Gourmet: 1960

By Jeffrey Buck

Football is upon us; both college and NFL. Along with football comes the tradition of tailgating before games across the country. Nothing says football like an old station-wagon sitting in The Big House filled with all those tasty foods.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Tailgate Gourmet: 1960“:

Fall 1960. A Kodachrome by our old friend Arthur Rothstein, taken for the Look magazine assignment “Tailgate Gourmets.” “Food for tailgate picnics displayed in the backs of station wagons, including a Ford Country Squire, a Dodge Lancer, and a Pontiac Bonneville Safari parked in a football stadium. Also images of a couple wearing raccoon coats standing next to their Dodge Lancer.”
