1903 Holsman Runabout

Date:
1903
Creator:
Holsman Automobile Company

This 1903 Holsman runabout could negotiate America's early rural roads. Its big wheels with puncture-proof solid rubber tires cleared ruts, climbed hills, and traveled through dirt, sand, and mud. These high-wheelers were inexpensive and low maintenance. High-wheelers were popular especially among farmers until other automobiles became better and cheaper.
