Nice one, Harry . . . that thing has more beautiful design on it than half of the latter part of the 20th Century vehicles!

Looks like the definition of the term "horseless carriage"! Are you sure that isn't a stagecoach minus its horses? :lol:
I have no idea!

The car is an 1899 Columbia (the same Columbia that makes bicycles) Landaulet electric car. Check out these photos... it's a pretty cool car!

i was thrown by the actual steering wheel instead of the typical-for-the-time tiller steering... i was looking a decade later and found Riker and kreuzer electrics.... i knew it had to be electric because of the huge (relatively) rear hubs, which must contain motors.

it's certainly a pretty thing....
