The Brass Era Demo Day

February 10, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm

The Brass Era is a term for the early period of automotive manufacturing, named for the prominent fittings used during this time for such things as lights and radiators, that were typically made of brass. Most experts consider the approximate 20 years between 1896 through 1915 to be “The Brass Era”, and autos of this era were often referred to as horseless carriages. Come see some of the oldest and rarest “horseless carriages” on the face of the Earth as we present “The Brass Era” Demo Day!
