Automobile Ads

Before 1899, horses, carriages, and bicycles ruled the dirt roads in Honolulu. On October 8, 1899, people watched Henry P. Baldwin and Edward D. Tenney drive Hawaii’s first “horseless car” around town.

Hawaii car dealers advertised in Hawaii newspapers ever since. Earliest brands included Ford and Locomobile. Plus, Schuman Carriage served as one of Hawaii’s earliest automobile dealers.
