Tractions with Django Reinhardt Music

This film made by a Traction enthusiast in Zwolle, the Netherlands, shows the purchase of a 1949 Traction Avant 11 BN from Citroën Agent Pieterman in Zwolle, along with some home movies of the era featuring Tractions.

These home movies, edited together with the song H.C.Q. Strut by Django Reinhardt from a 1939-1940 album, make for a great period experience with Traction aficionados. They go together so well, don’t they?

Garage Pieterman was at the Harm Smeengekade 7 in Zwolle. The building that housed the garage is still there. (It now houses a business called Tempo Team.)

Harm Smeengekade 7 in Zwolle today.
