The Garage

Front Cover

Like the gas station, the garage got its start around the turn of the 20th century — in fact, the gas station got its start in the garages that sprang up to meet the repair needs of the automobile. These garages were often converted blacksmith shops, bicycle repair shops, and liveries. In the Garage: Automobility and Building Innovation in America's Early Auto Age, author's John A. Jakle and Keith A. Sculle treat the garage as an American icon, showing its importance and place amongst the other architectural and automotive achievements of the 20th century, and the role it played in shaping our landscape and developing the United States of America into the country it is today.
