Blind stamped lower left, reads "Gallery of the American Automobile." The Stanley Motor Carriage Company was an American manufacturer of steam-engine vehicles; it operated from 1902 to 1924. "The Stanley Brothers were shrewd Yankee 'horse-traders' as well as mechanical wizards. Their first car had appeared in 1897. It was so successful that shortly thereafter Locomobile interests bought their factory and patents for $250,000. In 1902 the Stanleys re-entered the steam car field with a redesigned model which rendered the Locomobile almost obsolete." 20th Century Subjects , Transportation , Automobiles & Trucks
