The Nash automobile, forgotten by many but still alive in some auto bone yards. 1916-1954
If it weren’t for the fact that we live in Nashville, I may have walked right by this grill. But it kind of called out to me, a reminder of a vehicle either forgotten or not ever known about. Until we moved here I had never heard of the Marathon car line, but I sure do love that old building!
Color or black and white? Decisions, decisions.
What’s so great about the Nash automobile? Check this out: Nash started selling an optional air conditioning/heating system, using Kelvinator knowledge; it was the first car heater powered by hot water to work with fresh air. The next year, a thermostat was added, creating the Nash Weather Eye heater, the first thermostatic climate control system. I researched and got this info from the Nash at this link and it is very interesting reading.
The moral of the story is, that as photographers we have a duty to document some of these fading facts for future generations. If you are out walking around and you see something brand new to you, take a picture of it. You may not need or want it now, but one day you may be glad you did.
