The electric car, darling of the 1907 Auto show

If you're at all familiar with the 100+ year history of the electric car, then the fact that there are women in the photo above should not surprise you on whit. If you need a refresher, check out this post on women and electric cars and this one on women and greener driving.

OK, so, what's the reason for brining this up again? It's because of Scientific American's gallery of cars from a 1907 car show. SciAm's post is a photographic supplement to the November 2007 issue, specifically an article on cars in the magazine's "50, 100 & 150 Years Ago" section. In the best recycling fashion, the pictures are from the November 1907 Scientific American. The car in the photo is "A Powerful Electric Touring Runabout." Does anyone know more about it?
