Early 1900s electric trucks advertisements

Early 1900s electric trucks advertisements
This entry is part 12 of 17 in the series Automobile Ads Scrapbook

Here are 2 pages of ads for electric trucks from the early 1900s that were in that scrap book that my boyfriend’s dad dropped off a few weeks ago. I am guessing these are from the late teens or early 1920s? In the Detroit Electric Car ad, it looks like Santa Clause is sitting in the vehicle!

According to Wikipedia:

“Detroit Electric (1907–1939 and 2008–present) was an electric car produced by the Anderson Electric Car Company in Detroit, Michigan. The company built 13,000 electric cars from 1907 to 1939.[1] The Detroit Electric brand was revived again in 2008 to produce modern all-electric cars by Detroit Electric Holding Ltd. of the Netherlands.”

I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
