Women and Cars

Jan. 24, 1910, Sydney Ford 

Jan. 24, 1910: Sydney Ford writes about women, cars and the annual Los Angeles auto show. She touches on America's only auto club for women and talks about fashions, including the latest outfits for chauffeurs. Ford took a trip around the world in 1910 and her account was serialized in The Times. It might be interesting to tag along with her later this year. For people who are in a hurry, her stories were collected in a book, “Journeying Around the World,” published in 1912.
