Photograph was taken of the Franklin Hood Ornament in the art deco style at the Franklin Car Museum in Tucson, Arizona, USA.
The Franklin Car Museum is a small museum in north-central Tucson. The main attraction is the Franklin, one of the most innovative, luxury automobiles of the classic era of the late 1920s and 1930s.
Thomas H. Hubbard of Tucson – who, until his death in 1993, was a well-known auto restorer and car history buff, and a leading authority on the Franklin automobile, started the Franklin Museum. The museum has at least 18 models on display, all original or fully restored, built between 1910 and 1934.
The Franklin Automobile Company was a manufacturer of automobiles in the United States between 1902 and 1934 in Syracuse, New York. Herbert H. Franklin, the founder, began his career in the metal die casting business before establishing his automobile enterprise.
Throughout its history, Franklin was a luxury car and competed with other upscale automobiles of the day. As such, it fell victim to the Great Depression along with many luxury car manufacturers. The company sold about 150,000 cars over the course of more than 30 years in existence.
