Photographic History of Winther Motors

Photographic History of Winther Motors at the Wisconsin Historical Society. "...Martin P. Winther formed the Winther Motor and Truck Company in Kenosha in 1916. From 1916 to 1927, the company manufactured everything from four-wheel drive trucks to sporty automobiles, snow plows, rail cars and mechanical posthole diggers. With just an eighth-grade education, Martin Winther and his brother Anthony became prolific inventors, patenting almost 300 car- and truck-related mechanical devices in their lifetimes. The photographic history of the Winther Motor Company gives unusual insight into manufacturing at the time."
