Sepia-toned photograph of a man in an early runabout-style car parked on the west side of Woodward Avenue at Atwater Street. A sign reading "Sheriff 1912" is hung from one of the car's roof supports. H.D. Edwards and Company's building stands in the background. Other signs posted on the building advertise "Sail Makers and Rigging[...]" and "Awnings, Tents" in reference to the J.C. Gloss Company and the Detroit Awning and Tent Company, who also shared that building.
Mounted autographed sepia-toned bust portrait photograph of Charles B. King in profike wearing suit, round-collared shirt, tie, and glasses. The photo is signed by King with the enscription, "For Alfred O. Dunk 1920." A typewritten label caption on the matting reads "Charles B. King Built and Operated the First Automobile on the Streets of Detroit 1894 (Oliver E. Barthel was the first passenger)."
Sepia-toned photo taken to document the pavement at John R Street and Farnsworth Street. A man sits in an early automobile, stopped alongside the curb, where four girls and a boy wait.

"July 20th, 1903. Schwartz casr[?], John R. + Farnsworth there had not been any change in the pavement. F.S.Q." is handwritten on the verso.
Small sepia-toned photographic print captioned on verso as "Van Dyke Ave. looking north, April 25th, 1918." An early automobile is parked to the right, and several more are visible in the distance. Two and three-story homes are on either side of the street. Several pedestrians walk along the sidewalk in the distance. The trees are still bare.
