There is a pretty little 1960 or 1961 four door sedan turning in front of the tank.


The caption reads: "Motorist's view of a street in Baghdad, Iraq, on February 12, 1963, where tanks stand by to prevent further outbreaks of fighting which followed a military coup and overthrow of Premier Abdel Karim Kassem's five-year-old regime by elements of the Ba'ath Party."
