Car Catalogues

Several hundred photomechanical reproductions from the pages of motor vehicle (automobiles and some trucks) manufacturers' catalogs from 1909, in the first decade of the automobile industry. Primarily monochrome, interspersed with surprisingly lavish color plates, the images include parts diagrams, engine works, and model inventory." Manufacturers include Benz, Buick, Ford, Franklin, Oldsmobile, Packard, Peerless, Rambler, and Studebaker. Also includes a list of related subject headings. From the New York Public Library (NYPL).
