Car magazines 100 years ago
I am currently reading in an old car magazine, a really old one. It's dated from 1906! Quite fascinating what people were writing about, i.e. about how you start, have you drive threw a bend or how you stop a car. Or what about the perfect clothes to drive a car? Or how about learning to drive in the night? This was a real topic despite the low speed (many countries/states only allowed for 10 km/h) and the minimal amount of traffic. Already in 1906 people were concerned about fuel efficiency! Legal cases around the automobile were hot topics as well. All in all the development since 1906 is amazing!
