Don Valentine asked:
"Can't recall, when did Mather really get its start? This is the first Mather car I've seen that has not utilized commonly available steel channels, angles and such. It appears that they were building wood framed cars in much the same way but from how early a date?"

The first cars designed by Alonzo Mather were built in the 1880s.
