Found this while trawling old pics, the photo says 1894 - Haynes Automobile, so ok we got that part, now before this came this Haynes First Car..
then before that...
Haynes-Apperson-Americas first practice automobile
three speed -on one lever
and so we move forward to 1916/17and the Haynes Light Six.
( this didn't want to work )
The model 27
The Haynes AppeltonCar Company (would this be as in Appleton Wisconson too)...
Somehow l kinda forgot the point of this posting, enjoy any way.
Haynes Apperson not Appleton.
That's most likely Elwood Haynes sitting in his car.
Those of us who are true Massholes would say that the Duryea was the first American practical automobile. First tested on the roads of Springfield, MA in September of 1893. Ohio and North Carolina can argue over "first in flight", but Massachusetts is first in automobiles.
Maybe the first in the US.
The first Duryea is typically considered the first U.S. built, internal combustion engine powered automobile. The distinction in being first is in the motive of power.
John Lambert's "Buckeye Gasoline Buggy". Built in 1890 and in use on the city streets in 1891. Ohio City. Never sold a single one and the prototype was destroyed in a 1905 fire.
