FINE & RARE 1959


The Year that Was

In a year for iconic cars, the original Mini designed by Sir Alec Issigonis was launched, as were the Chevy El Camino and the classic 1959 Cadillac. Fidel Castro came to power in Cuba, while Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon starred in ‘Some Like it Hot’. Louis Leakey found the skull of ‘Nutcracker Man’ in Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania, suggesting that human evolution began on the continent of Africa.
