Looking Back — Antique cars

The Antique Car Club gathers at the Pacific Beach Hotel in 1924. Although “antique” might be a bit of a stretch, self-propelled vehicles were around since the late 18th century and Karl Benz received a patent on his Motowagon in 1886. Henry Ford’s Model T came out in 1908. This photograph was taken from an open cockpit bi-plane circling the festivities.
