New Berlin Hotel Has Rooms for Cars and Chauffeurs (Dec, 1930)

New Berlin Hotel Has Rooms for Cars and Chauffeurs

THE last word in garages has been introduced in a large and exclusive hotel which has recently been erected in Berlin, Germany. Accommodations are furnished not only for the cars, but also for the chauffeurs, who have well appointed quarters just over the garage.

The chief feature of the new arrangement is its convenience both for car owners and for chauffeurs. The driver merely drives the car into the stall, then retires to his quarters, where he remains in readiness for his employer, who may call him at any moment by means of a phone.

The cars are kept in top-notch condition by a crew of mechanics whose business it is to overhaul the cars every night.

    Oh, for the good old days when you could overhaul a car overnight, just something about needing to be able to overhaul your car overnight. Tires could get a thousand miles before wearing out. Of course by then the engine would be due for a ring job also.

    Most tires lasted a lot longer than a thousand miles, or most of the farmers around here would have been replacing their tires weekly!
