A little printing history…

Worlds First Newspaper Ad

The Winton Motor Carriage Company ran the earliest known printed automobile ad on July 30th in an 1898 issue of Scientific American.

On March 24, 1898 Robert Allison of Port Carbon, Pennsylvania became the first person to buy a Winton automobile after seeing the ad.

Bonus fact: The Winton firm was bought by General Motors in 1930 and became part of the Electro-Motive Corporation, still in business today.
