Ugly Electrics?

Picture of a 1911 Baker Electric (American Cars).

The advent of highways would spell the end for electric cars in America. Soon cities and states would be linked by automobile and people needed the gas engine because it allowed for a greater range. By the 1920s and 30s electrics were often used by the elderly to get around town and many joked that they looked like rolling phone booths.
