Early Automobiles in the Pictures

Selections from: http://www.littletechshoppe.com/ns1625/automobiles.html

The first automobile ever seen in Nova Scotia, arrived on the Allan liner Siberian from Liverpool [England] this morning. It is a gasoline horseless carriage, owned by William Exshaw, son-in-law of Sir Sanford Fleming. It was built in France and has been run by Mr. Exshaw since the first of the year. The propelling motor is operated by gasoline. The automobile is boxed up, but Mr. Exshaw expects to be driving it around the streets in a few days.
[Quoted whole from the Halifax Daily Echo, 11 September 1899]

William H. MacCurdy in his history of the MacKay car produced in Nova Scotia tells of the first cars in the Province. "In the spring of 1904 Archie Pelton along with Mr. Porter of Kentville, a successful businessman went to the first automobile show in New York city. Here they bought two Curved Dash Oldsmobiles and had them shipped to Nova Scotia. These were the first two cars in the province for resale. In 1904 there were 15 other cars in the Province, but these had been bought by their owners in the United States."
