Vintage Car Stuffing?
Ever want to see how sausage is made? Well, okay – maybe not… but this interesting photo taken by Lewis Reed some 100 plus years ago allows you to see how 18 men managed to cram themselves into a 1910-1911 Pierce Arrow Model 48 7-Passenger Touring. Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company in Buffalo, New York, produced some of the finest automobiles made and was one of the most popular high-quality cars of the time.
Unfortunately, no other details about the the photograph or the location is known. If anyone can identify the building in the background, please leave me a comment.

A Warm Welcome to our Blog!
My name is Jeanne Gartner and I am the author of this blog. Lewis Reed, the founder of Reed Brothers Dodge was my grandfather. We were a family-owned and operated car dealership in Rockville, Maryland for almost a century.
Reed Brothers was franchised as a Dodge dealership in October 1915; less than one year after the first Dodge automobile rolled off the assembly line. Lewis Reed and his brother Edgar, were the first to sell Dodge cars in Montgomery County Maryland. That made Reed Brothers the oldest auto dealership under the same family ownership in Maryland, and one of the oldest in the entire nation.
The blog highlights an historic timeline that showcases the company’s history, how Reed Brothers Dodge came into being, and how the company overcame the inevitable changes and challenges throughout almost a century of being in business.
Lewis Reed was also a well-known photographer in Montgomery County. This blog provides a century of knowledge and information extending beyond the automobile. On this blog, you will find an extensive collection of photographs taken by Lewis Reed from historical locations in Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia, most of which are more than 100 years old.
Business longevity is something to celebrate and share. I created this blog for readers to gain insight into our history and look back at what contributed to its success.
I look forward to sharing our family business history with you.
