This blog post marks a return to the Nethercutt Collection in Sylmar, California. The collection features rare collectibles ranging from mechanical musical instruments and antique furniture to the true heart of the collection: over 250 American and European automobiles dating from 1898 to 1997. To view a panorama from my previous visit to the Nethercutt and the interior of a 1937 Pierce Arrow trailer, click here.
The wonderful thing about the Nethercutt is that photography is permitted however on some days tripods and monopods are OK while on other days it is not. I think it depends on the security team but it’s worth calling ahead before visiting.
This panorama was particulary difficult to capture with tricky lighting and reflections everywhere. Marble columns, crystal chandeliers, painted ceilings all make up this beautiful Grand Salon Showroom of the 1910’s, 20s and 30s. On display are approximately 30 of the finest automoblies of that era. Duesenbergs, Cadillacs, Isotta-Fraschini, Delahaye, Minvera, Renault, Maybach, many other European and American built automobiles.
