This car was manufactured at Hopewell, Nova Scotia in 1898, named ‘The Victorian’. The car was a two passenger buggy with iron tires, chain drive, and tiller steering.

The Victorian – this is the first gasoline-powered automobile constructed in the Maritimes. The vehicle could reach speeds of five miles per hour on the flat, but it had great difficulty climbing even the smallest grade. Only one example of this pioneering automobile was constructed.
