The Scripps-Booth Cyclecar Company was founded in 1913 and occupied a factory less than a mile from the Detroit Historical Museum. The company produced about 400 vehicles before the fad passed.

This “DaVinci Pup” is one of four Scripps-Booth vehicles in the Detroit Historical Society Collection and is yet another one-of-a kind example that we’re proud to display. Constructed on a wood frame, the boat-tailed aluminum body weighs 1,250 pounds and is powered by an all-aluminum 16-valve, 4-cylinder engine.

This next installment of Detroit Artists Showcase features several pieces from renowned artist Jerome Biederman, a nationally recognized transportation illustrator. Whether his subject was an automobile, aircraft or train, his renderings were technically accurate and highly detailed. His medium of choice was tempera paint and an illustration board.

Following his death in 1996, friends gathered his original paintings and began donating them to organizations with historic ties to the various transportation modes pictured. The Society’s Collection has received 28 of Biederman’s automobile images, courtesy of Kenneth Cahn.
