Easton Sidewalks: A Classic Locomobile Arrives on North Street


One of the incredible joys of living in Easton is to walk by the North Street Garage, one of a handful of rare automobile restoration companies on the East Coast, just a few hundred yards from downtown. It seems like every week some remarkable artifact of the car’s Golden Era sits temporarily outside the Garage’s workshop for the public to admire from a distance. This has included beautifully maintained historic Jags, MGs and most recently a classic Essex Coach from the 1920s.

But even by North Street’s standards, yesterday was a landmark moment when a 1916 Locomobile was delivered to the shop for restoration. With District of Columbia license tags dating from 1930, this one-hundred-year-old rare specimen of the early driving days of the country arrived with the engine working and original tires in place.

The Spy took a moment to record this grand old lady before its rehabilitation.

This video is approximately one minute in length. For more information about the history of the Locomobile please go here
