Wow Photo Wednesday
Arrive in this at the auto show and everybody would sure to say "Wow!" Because of its rarity, it would probably be necessary to explain that this is a Frayer-Miller truck, built by the Oscar Lear Automobile Company in Columbus, Ohio and advertised as "the car of endurance." These were manufactured between the years of 1904 and 1910, and featured the first air-cooled engines. Most of the information available about Frayer-Miller is about their sedans, and very little is available about their trucks - so apparently we have something really unique here. If only we had the real thing....
You can search our Digital Collections for "trucks," and get some really great photographs. If you're looking for a good Father's Day present, a framed picture of an old truck, tractor, or automobile from our collection will be sure to fill the bill.
"Wow Photo Wednesday" celebrates photographs in the Denver Public Library's Digital Collections that have "The Wow Factor" and that highlight the myriad delightful nuggets in our database.
