Citroën U55 Cityrama Currus: Parisian spaceship from the 1950s!
(image via, original Joel Katcoff) This Cityrama vehicle is a fitting tribute to a certain joie de vivre and artistic flair of Paris… Esprit de Paris, if you like, the City of Lights. Paris is also known as the City of Love, and so it’s easy to imagine cuddling up to your girl inside this bus, chatting about sweet nothings, while watching the marvelous panorama unfold outside. It looks wild and… strangely attractive. And it was super comfortable, too.

Here are better views of this Parisian spaceship from the 1960 film “Zanzie dans le Métro”: Apparently quite a few of them were made, making them easy to spot in the 1950s Paris (these lucky Parisians!)
