Additional info: Maxwell’s creative sales manager featured the automobile driving up steps of buildings, racing horses – even teeter boarding – to show it could go where no horse, or man on foot, could go. It made the vehicle a hit on the nickelodeon as well as in silent movies which helped sell a lot of Maxwells.
