Weird Vintage Untitled Document

Although the first car wash appeared in 1914, it would take a few decades to figure out the best way to go about it.   Since dirt roads were the norm back then, the car undercarriages would get extremely dirty.  

One solution was a flooded circular basin, such as Chicago’s “Auto Wash Bowl” depicted here, in 1924.  The cars were driven around, and then detailed by hand up top.  (via Findery)
