Homes The automobile has added ma- ! terlallv. to the cost of the American home.. / I! 4|l«i doubt this ask a neighbor who recently has had to have a garage erected or enlarged to house Ms modern model motor car. Automobiles have played'a distinct role in architecture. Perhaps their biggest Influence was In the creation of the garage that now is P»rt of the typical home. Cart Coitly In 1910 Back in 1910, when an automobile cost almost as much as an •• nver- »ge house, the family car was hous- ed in a converted barn or sh?d. Today its electrically lighted garage, heated throughout the winter, fitted with delicately balanced overhead doors, sometimes automatically operated from a key post in the driveway, or from a mere radio signal from the car, has become an integral part of the modern home. However, there are some part-s of the country where garages as such are the exception rather than the rule. .Where temperatures are usually mild and the climate dry. a "car port," or simply a space with Most important Paint Advancement in 25 years i New Fume-Proof, Sun-Proof House Paint produces a film of unusual whiteness.

Sprciuilnr Foaibilitiei The car port seems to have possibilities for spreading. There are thousand* of apartment dwellers whose cars are never, put under cover. Their vehicles withstand the weather u well u the business man'* car which is in the open 16 hours or more every day. Many persons, particularly the younger age group, want to buy a car before they buy a home. This rs becoming increasingly the rule with houses built in outlying suctions. , . Perhaps If this were not true, the _car industry relying largely upon installment buying of Its product, would not be nearly ax large as it is today. All in all. however, the automobile, and the house are very closely related. In the transportation it provides, the automobile has made it possible for millions of persons to live in comfort away from congested sections.
