Franklin and Essex Car ads

Flattr this!

This entry is part 11 of 17 in the series Automobile Ads Scrapbook

Here are ads for Franklin cars and Essex cars. I think, judging by the ladys’ cloche hats in the Essex automobile advertisement, that these old car ads are from the very early 1920s.

The Essex is generally credited with starting the trends away from open touring cars toward enclosed passenger compartments as the rule, not the exception.

About The Author

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. 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.
