RESERVED for Dolores You Auto Be My Valentine 1900s Antique | Etsy
The automobile’s social impact was revolutionary. The sale of millions of automobiles created “car culture” in the United States. Motoring garments such as the duster were essential in protecting travelers from the elements. This motoring duster coat was made between 1910-1915, though the maker is unknown. It was gifted to the Museum at FIDM in 2007. Silk Dusters in 1915 cost around $10 (Los Angeles Times 1915, 15). Learn more in my book, Artifacts from American Fashion (ABC-CLIO).

Valentines in the shape of cars that hinted at honeymoons, postcards showing joyrides, and other similar products further cemented the car into American culture.
