Automobile News

Horses, carriages, and bicycles ruled the dirt roads in Honolulu before 1899. On October 8, 1899, people watched Henry P. Baldwin and Edward D. Tenney drive Hawaii’s first “horseless car” around town. In 1906, Hawaii issued its first driver’s license.

Afterwards, automobile sections in Hawaii newspapers. They included automobile news, such as automobile sales, automobile races, lists of motor vehicle registrations and new automobile models, and automobile ads.

Most of the articles appear to be from other U.S. mainland newspapers although a few were written locally.
