“HAS NO APPETITE FOR GASOLENE” - The two-seater brougham shown above is a veritable camel of the highways. For 20 years it has been passing gasolene stations and yet it has never stopped for a drink. Probabilities are that it never will, either, because it is an electric car, powered by a 36-cell, 46 volt power unit, with a range of 50 miles without recharging. It is owned by Mrs. C. S. Scott, 161 Hughson street south, this city. Mrs. Scott uses the auto for business and pleasure and yet she is not reducing essential stores of gasolene. The Hamilton Spectator. August 9, 1941

This electric car (on the right) looks to have been built in the teens or early 1920’s. Can anyone name this car? I would like to get a bit more history on this automobile.
