Up Against the Wahl….

The Wahl automobile like so many others at the time, was just another under capitalized maker from Detroit. They were only in business during 1913-1914, things were very slow which lead them to even sell their cars without any name on them so a buyer could install their own.  One of the owners George Wahl, evidently when times turned bad took his own life by drinking a bottle of carbolic acid. This left the other two partners to end up like many other like minded builders, bankrupt and out of business.

This photo is of a Garage in Clymer, Pa. that evidently sold the brand for a short while. Note the signs that motorists could see from a distance mounted at the top of the front of the building and the Wahl poster in the front window.
