EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the bustling streets of Westminster, London, in the early 20th century. The image showcases a magnificent Mercedes car parked gracefully in front of the iconic Mercedes Motor Showroom at number 12 Saville Row. The grandeur and elegance exuded by both the luxurious vehicle and the showroom itself are truly awe-inspiring. One cannot help but marvel at the architectural beauty of this Edwardian gem, with its ornate detailing and large windows that allow a glimpse into a world of automotive excellence. Photographed by Harry Bedford Lemere in 1907, this snapshot captures an era when Mercedes was still establishing itself as one of Germany's premier automobile manufacturers. With their beginnings dating back to the late 1890s, it is fascinating to witness how far they had come within just a few short years. Bedford Lemere's skillful composition allows us to appreciate not only the car but also its surroundings. The busy street scene hints at a vibrant atmosphere filled with excitement and anticipation for what lies beyond those showroom doors. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece of history preserved through photography, we are reminded of how transportation has evolved over time while appreciating timeless craftsmanship that continues to define luxury automobiles today.
