This data collection consists of prices and detailed attribute information for automobile models published in the contemporary trade press -- specifically the periodicals "Automotive Industries" and "Motor" -- at the time of the annual New York Auto Show from 1906 to 1941. It is important to note that the data represent only firms operating above a certain minimal economic threshold, namely they were large enough to make advertising at the major annual trade show attractive.
