Autoing in Early North Dakota (1906)
This scene showing men and women proudly attired in autoing clothes, was taken in October 1906, at Cooperstown, North Dakota, likely showing all nine cars in that community.
A similar photograph, taken the next year, showed that the automobile population had grown to sixteen cars and a special auto parade was even held during the county fair. Further boasting the automobiles achievements, the local paper announced in 1909 that Elmer Matheson had just made an eighty-mile auto trip to Sanborn, North Dakota, in only four hours and fifteen minutes.
