Automobile_KnoxAutomobile-200small.jpg automotive photographs available from Judbnick.com3-wheel delivery truck & trailer of the R. W. Rice Coal Company, on Wilbraham Road in Springfield Massachusetts, the Indian Motocycle plant in the background, manufactured by the Knox Automobile Company on the other side of that street; approximately 8-5/8"x6-1/2" original real photo with good focus & contrast. Knox was in business 1900 - 1914, but because such vehicles were unstable in braking turns, 3-wheelers were made only briefly. Rice Coal was incorporated in 1903, and probably bought this vehicle circa 1912 (after the first one was sold to the Springfield Fire Department.) Rare. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00  amm

"As I could not come personally I come by proxy. We got caught in the rain somewhat last Sunday. Robt." uncaptioned (so we use the entire message on back) sepia-tone real photo postcard sent JUL 24 1911 from Ann Arbor Michigan to Mrs. Charles Rich in Manchester Michigan. The sender is seated on his 1911 Yale 4 H P motorcycle. The down stroke of the 4 serves as the left downstroke of the H, the right downstroke of the H does double duty with the P, forming the distinctive monogram that shows after 'YALE' on the cylindrical fuel tank. 1911 was the first year for the straight line top frame, instead of having a bend upward. The manufacturer of the motorcycle was located in Toledo Ohio, which is an easy drive from Ann Arbor. SOLD RECENTLY m

"Coates & McDonald / AERO / Unicycle Co. / 617 Liggett Building / St. Louis, Mo., U. S. A." postcard mailed FEB 8 1912 from St. Louis to Mr. & Mrs Lewis Schwarz in Detroit Michigan. Sender wrote in part: 'We are busy this wk. at Coleseum(sic) with this affair on other side. How would you like to ride this going at the rate of a mile a minute...'. According to the October 5 1911 Motor Age, the St. Louis Manufacturers' and Dealers' Association announced that it would remain inactive during 1912. So the exhibition referred to was held by the Missouri Automobile Dealers Association, formed chiefly to the purpose of holding the February 1912 show coincidentally with the Veiled Prophet Festival, availing itself of the numerous out-of-town visitors. The motorized unicycle idea is obviously hair-brained & dangerous: the driver's view is at all times obstructed and at speeds approaching 60 miles an hour it becomes an undertaking (and we choose that word carefully) only for those having a death wish. Evidently that is what most of the recipients of this advertising postcard believed, tossing it in the trash to give it the repose it deserved. To the best of our knowledge this is the only surviving example. A search of the Internet revealed no other offers, no previous recorded offers, and no exhibitions whatsoever. $85.00 $67.50 mm(s)u SALE PRICE: SAVE $17.50 (21% OFF)

Then holder of the world's record for endurance, it was advertised as being "ideal for touring and business" (hence, his suit). The mentioned company first advertised its products as 'Yale-California' as late as 1909 (hence the 'Calif') on back. There are numerous light abrasions to the front surface.

"LIKE A FLASH / INDIAN MOTOCYCLE / HENDEE MFG. CO. / SPRINGFIELD, MASS." unused circa-1923 advertising post card with unevenly divided back, very light toning on back is probably from the printing process itself, good edges.

"Miss Isobel Elsom, the well-known Actress / and Cinema Star on her Ner-a-Car" postcard mailed 4 MAY 1923 from Kennington England to Miss G. Wilkinson at Bolton, Bradford stating: 'We are now in receipt of Guarantee Certificate in respect of Machine No. 3195, for which we thank you. Yours faithfully, THE SHEFFIELD SIMPLEX CO.' Miss Elsom was then a silent movie actress (credits from 1918) who would have a long career in movies, theater (after 1926) and TV (Hallmark Hall of Fame, Lux Video Theatre, etc.). The image demonstrates one of the Ner-a-Car advantages--namely its step-through design permitted its rider to wear ordinary clothing, such as skirts. Also noteworthy, it was the first motorcycle having a feet-forward design. The company made approximately 6,500 Ner-a-Cars from 1921-1926; a register maintained by Yahoo today estimates that about 50 still survive in Europe. A rare postcard, we could find no other example. Similar acknowledgements were probably discarded after the guarantee time period was up. SALE IN PROGRESS e(s)m

"Motor sled" uncaptioned so we quote briefly from the explanatory message, Azo (triangles up) sepia-tone real photo postcard, addressed to Mr Charles DeLong in Sarasota Florida & messaged but not stamped (probably used as an enclosure within a cover), oxidation consistent with circa-1917 age, lightly toned back, a bit of the lower left front corner missing but not knocked off or scissor-cut (probable end-of-a roll at printer), other corners with minor rounding. The entire message punctuation & misspellings are preserved here: 'Hello Buck how is things going down there here is a picture of the motor sled Umbaugh & I made took the engine and tire wheel out of the motor sackle We was to Lima 2 Sundays It will run as fast as the motor sackle does We had it running about 40 miles an hour on North St My girl is sitting on behind It was taken Christmas day We have been having some wether It got cold right after you left an the snow hasnt left yet Sleighing ever since we are making ice today It is 12 inches thick you might know how cold it would be Every thing OK Clark'. The Lima News (Lima Ohio) on December 8 1917 wrote on its page 1 that "Ohio, Indiana, and part of West Virginia were swept by a terrific blizzard today". That would given the writer enough time to fashion the motorized sled from a motorcycle, take 2 Sunday trips (December 16th & 23rd) to nearby Lima, and culminate his experiences with this Christmas day photograph.

Your truly Neal Cochran' This is the exact same image he sent to Motorcycle Illustrated, published in Vol. 5 page 136 with accompanying text: 'popularity of the lightweight machine, for city use, is rapidly growing on the Pacific Coast.' The spelling of the brand in Europe is the French Moto-Rêve, meaning motorized dream. Neal Cochran was an employee of the Wright Brothers in Dayton Ohio when they still made bicycles. He continued to associate himself with pioneer aviators on the coast, getting married on an airplane & then take for a ride therein, all reported back to the Dayton papers. $80.00 $70.00 mg(c)

On back there is a drawing of the mechanism over the words 'There are only six main parts in an ECLIPSE / BICYCLE COASTER BRAKE, which makes / it so simple that a child can assemble it; yet it / has the largest and most effective braking sur- / face of any made. Wise dealers are using this / brake exclusively. Write the Eclipse Machine / Company, Elmira, New York.' That text is followed by an image of their large manufacturing plant.

"THE SUNDAY HERALD--BOSTON, FEBRUARY 25 / Mr. and Mrs. T. K. Hastings Riding in a Tri-Car / In Havana and Equipped for a Journey Into the Suburbs" circa-1907 advertising postcard for Indian motorcycles reproducing the article with its illustration for a contemporaneous & enterprising salesman, Undivided back, minor corner & edge wear, 2 short internal creases from the right front center. Theodore K. Hastings was the Vice President of the Federation of American Motorcyclists. He was out of Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York City and made publicity trips abroad to Cuba & England, competing successfully at times. His activity continued at least into 1908 where we found numerous different mentions of him in Vol. LVII of the Bicycling World & Motorcycle Review. Pertinent personal message handwritten on front complements the advertising intent: 'Dear Veda. Have just returned from an 800 mile trip on my Indian. The Hendee Co Spring-field, Mass make them but your local dealer will show you. They are fast, cheap and economical, and it dont(sic) take an expert to run it and keep it going. Want one. Harry'. Rare: no one else can show you this. The reason you do not see any more of these is probably because the newspaper objected to the use of all its presumably copyrighted article, text and illustration, for an unintended commercial purpose of another business. That was also the probable reason the card was mailed under cover, instead mailing exposed to public view as a postcard. After paying to make them, the salesman still want to use them, even when pressured by the Boston Herald!

The only mention we could find of the laundry was in the 1913 Washington Court House and Fayette County Directory, which helps to locate & date the card; it further disclosed it was owned by Frank C. Richardson. A pennant hanging down from the motorbike at the extreme left partially reads 'WASHINGTON...' and 'C. H.' undoubtedly followed. 'SIL...' probably completes as 'SILVER', making it  an old sign because the early branding of Indians was 'Silver King' & 'Silver Queen'. Several curved internal creases from the edges, some oxidation consistent with age & toned back. $85.00 $72.50 o(w)m SALE PRICE: SAVE $12.50 (15% OFF)

Uncaptioned sepia-tone circa-1912 photograph the size of a regular postcard, showing a motorcycle with side car, flag waving, diver risking a 2-wheel ride. Possibly a parade stunt or preparation for a parade stunt. Light uneven toning on the back, uneven slightly wavy cut to the top. Dangerous: the flag partially obscures his view, and if his left foot catches the ground, it would not be pretty, especially without a helmet! SOLD RECENTLY m

Uncaptioned sepia-tone real photo postcard showing a lady with 2 children & a dog posed on a Kerry motorcycle with side car & English license plate H.5084. Mailed OCT 2 1909 from London to Miss Alice Turner (staying at a hotel in Crewkerne Somerset). The name Kerry is plainly on the motor to the left of the boy's foot; the teenage girl's dress probably covers the company logo on the fuel tank. The basket for the side car has an interesting history. From 1904 to 1907 Kerry made a Tri-Kar, which was a three-wheel motorized bicycle on which passengers rode up front in a large basket, with supporting wheels on either side of them. [You can view the Tri-Kar in an advertisement in the November 1st 1904 The Motor.] The Kerry Company manufactured motorcycles until 1915, according to the authoritative cybermotorcycle.com/euro/brands/kerry.htm. We see from this rare photograph that they put their sturdy-basket-making know-how to work on side cars in their later years. Notice how English side cars were to the driver's left, in contrast to American side cars which were to the driver's right. That difference arose because respective drivers drove on different sides of the road. Alongside the handwritten communication on back is a neat handstamp reading 'S. E. DREW, 11, Westbourne Rd. Barnsbury, N.', a fairly fashionable London residential address to this day, who was the sender. Altogether a rare image: we could not find any other image of a Kerry motorcycle with side car when we searched the Internet. $65.00 me(l)

Uncaptioned sepia-tone real photo postcard showing a man atop an Indian Camelback motorcycle at rest, mailed AUG 10 1908 from Brooklyn New York Station D to Alvan Willis (misspelling his first name which was Alvin) in Berrien Springs Michigan, forwarded to Tallman Michigan. Interesting message, although its two coincidental & different mentions of the word Indian do not refer to the motorcycle: 'Brooklyn N. Y. Aug. 7, 1908 Well hows the baby. The band concert was fine, can hear the Indian drumming and bugle calls yet. Was at Coney Island yesterday & saw the Indian Show there at Brighton also saw air ship. W. D. W.' Although somewhat dark, the focus is good to provide details. For example, we can plainly read all the gas/oil tank lettering as 'INDIAN / HENDEE MFG. CO. / Springfield, Mass.' Lightly toned back, soft corners, oxidation consistent with age. There were 5 Indian models sold to the public in 1908. An estimated 20 of the first edition Camelbacks survive today.

Uncaptioned sepia-tone real photo postcard showing a woman conveyed by a motorcycle with side car to the Tent City office at Euclid Beach amusement park (Cleveland Ohio), salesman respectfully removing his hat as she arrives; mailed AUG 8 1909 (a Sunday) to Mrs. H. S. Parks in Watertown New York, upper corner crease, minor rounding to the corners, back with uneven album toning. Postcard sold but still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg or .tif format. $2.00 o(c)cma

Unused sepia-tone Azo (triangles all up) real photo with exemplary composition & contrasts, showing the interior of an automotive supply shop with an very old motorcycle on display, back shelves filled with Eveready batteries, Half Inch grease & motor oil cans; occupants oozing attitude. The name between the young lady and the steering column is not legible under high magnification; it has stumped the personnel of 2 noted motorcycle museums. The long footboard is reminiscent of a 1913 Scott. This is the oldest photograph we could find of a woman seated on a motorcycle. SALE IN PROGRESS mi(s)

"Warning of approach / Art IV.(5). He shall / give audible and sufficient warning .. when overtaking / foot passengers .. / ..." with signed Chas. Crombie (Charles Edward Crombie) comic art depicting a motorcyclist using his horn to warn pedestrians, a pig & some ducks of his approach along a country path; postcard from the Reo Series, printed in Germany, former owner's handstamp neatly on back, minor corner wear. The law quoted was the British Motor Car Act of 1903 (which went into effect in 1904). It differentiated for the first time between motorcars and motorcycles. A bell was another approved method spelled out in the law for warning pedestrians, but we wonder -- if the pedestrian could not hear the motorcycle, why would the horn or bell be heard? It is on such absurdities that comic postcards are made. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. a(c)mlc

"Well here's looking at you. Mr. and Mrs. Neal Cochran / Los Angeles Calif / June 21 1910" uncaptioned (so we use all the writing on front) real photo postcard. Writing on back continues in part: "The picture on the opposite side is the Mrs. and I as we some times go joying(sic) riding. Neal Cochrane'. The writer at that time was a former employee of the Wright Brothers bicycle shop in Dayton Ohio, and was thus sufficiently skilled to modify what we believe is the Excelsior shown. The newly married couple continued his association with pioneer aviators when on the West Coast. He and Leona Cowan got married in the airplane of Turpin who them promptly took them up for a ride. A ship followed that airplane as it flew over water, in case of difficulties. The news made Dayton Ohio papers. Asked if she thought her trip a bit dangerous she replied "I just love excitement, anyhow, and I knew that there was not danger. Mr. Turpin is a fine pilot and and landed us safely. It was a swell trip and one that no other bride has taken." The small sign in the background informs its viewers that Venice California was 4 miles distant. Small bottom corner bend, trivial corner wear otherwise & oxidation consistent with age. $125.00 $110.00 mc(l)g(c) SALE PRICE: SAVE $15.00 (12% OFF)

                     18 MOTORCYCLE SHOP PHOTOS - CIRCA 1958
Eighteen 3.5"x5" color photos of a motorcycle shop interior graced by a good looking young lady posing in various exotic-dance-type costumes. Included are racks of leather clothing, a Harley poster, a Busted in Daytona poster, a Frye poster, clothing with Harley insignia hanging on racks, etc. The one view out the window shows what appears to be a late 1950's car (shown right). The young lady tries on a leather vest from the shop. It is an amateur's effort. In 9 of the shots the photographer had a hard time keeping his mind on the lighting, so those photos came out a little dark. (Flash photography was not used in any of them, so there are no ugly shadows.) But when he got the lighting right, he really did her justice! No full nudity or salacious behavior in any of the photos. $28.00 postpaid anywhere. mi
