Synopsis
November 4; 1899 in downtown Manhattan; New York: This may be the first annual automobile parade; held on November 4; 1899 in downtown Manhattan. At least ten different makes and models are seen; including electric and steam powered machines. Only three years earlier; in 1896; Henry Ford; Charles Brady King; Alexander Winton and Ransom Eli Olds had each introduced their gasoline cars. In 1900; the first National Auto Show was held at Madison Square Garden and the favorites were the electrics and the steamers. In 1901; new oil fields in Texas made gasoline affordable. That same year; mass production techniques were introduced into car manufacturing. These two factors would prove to be key developments in the rapid growth of the American automobile industry.
