You don't have to be a car fanatic to find this online collection tremendously interesting. Over the decades, the General Motors Corporation donated a number of photographs and related materials to the New York Public Library. The staff members at the Library mounted them in albums, and recently they digitized theses albums for use by the web-browsing public. All told, the collection includes over 750 images from public relations materials from 1902 to 1938. The items here include press releases for different models, line drawings, and black and white photographs. Among the highlights here are some excellent photographs of old DeSotos, Plymouths, and Oldsmobiles. For fans of the history of technology, automobiles, and other related subjects, this website will be one to pass along to friends and others.
