Henri Cartier-Bresson, SWEDEN. Tylösand. 1956.This is interesting because in 1956 Sweden still drove on the left and didn’t switch sides until1967. So why do the cars in the photo have the steering wheel on the left? However I checked and apparently most Swedes were driving LHD cars presumably because they were imported from nearby countries .
