What a Lot of Automobile History from 1895 to 1915!

Few industries can show the strides made by the automobile industry.  In twenty years, practically, has come the immense development of the motor car both as to efficiency and use.  A few facts, bobbing up from various sources this week, emphasize how much automobile history has been made since 1895.

In 1895, in the first noteworthy motor derby in the United States, the most powerful racer attained an average speed of 7.5 miles an hour.  In 1895 the first motor exhibition took place in England.  Five cars took part.  It is stated by The London Daily Telegraph that there were only about six motor cars in all England at that time.  The same year, 1895, the first automobile race was run between Paris and Bordeaux.
