A Dekko at the Decauville


1898decauvillevoiturelle1024

Known as Decauville’s Voiturelle, this was a hot sell in 1898 Paris. It cost £140, one third up front and the rest on delivery.

At the steeplechase of Auteuil a very pretty little motor-car made its first appearance and was greatly admired. Light, very elegant, painted in bright golden yellow, with two comfortable seats. This motor-car merits considerable attention, as it is very easy to manipulate, and can be turned in a small space. Later on, at the Paris Agricultural Show, it was one of the greatest attractions of the Exhibit of the Société Decauville. Full particulars of the car may be obtained at the offices of The Société Decauville :— 13 Boulevard Malesherbes, Paris.

Probably not now, though.
