"The luggage trunk on the rear platform is from the era when the trunk was literally a trunk. Also, these early automobiles usually had no front or rear bumpers as yet, as perhaps tailgating had not been invented or at least not practiced on the road."--Fletcher, David H. "The Portland Company 1846-1982." Charleston, S.C.: Arcadia Pub., 2002. 79.
