Beautiful certificate from the Automatic Spring Motor Car and Carriage Company issued in 1883. This historic document has an ornate border around it with a vignette of an automatic spring motor car. This item has been hand signed by the Company’s President, and Treasurer, and is over 133 years old.
The experiment of the Automatic Spring Motor Car and Carriage Company, of Philadelphia, will be watched by most of our readers with a great deal of interest. The company are now having constructed a street car which is to be driven by steel springs. These springs are some 60 feet in length, 3 inches wide and ^ inch thick. Whether it is possible to store a considerable amount of power by steel springs is a question which has by no means been determined. The furnaces and the winding apparatus for making these springs had to be specially constructed. If they will perform as the company hope, it is evident that their field of application is vastly wider than has apparently been anticipated.
