Horsepower (1937)


I thought this was an interesting piece to add to our collection. Just in case some might want to know about the term horsepower and where it came from and how it is measured.

How the term 'horsepower' came to be applied to mechanical devices is made clear in this picture, & an explanation of how the modern motorcar can hold the power of 85 horses under its hood."
