Description (ca. 1921): Automobiles were starting to get more common and start replacing horses for their uses at this time. Autos had white wood and ash with iron braces and covered in aluminum for the main components. Hoods and fenders were made from steel. The exterior was painted with priming, 2 coats of lead, 5 coats of "rough" paint and followed by two color paints. Then the cars were varnished at least three times and finally the auto was enameled. Autos were staring to get popular and this led to the detail and care that was put into these cars.
