500 Motorcycles Decorate Walls at German Auto Show, 1929

Motorcycles by the hundreds covered the walls of the exhibition buildings at the Motor Show in Berlin, 1929. As shown in the photo, the cycles were hung seven-deep upon the walls, with a row of machines fitted with side-car equipment occupying a ledge beneath. More than 500 motorcycles were used in assembling this unique exhibit. The purpose of the novel arrangement was to save expense because of the high cost of floor space.


Americans might think it peculiar to give so much emphasis to motorcycles at an auto show, but the two-wheeled vehicle is much more popular abroad than in the United States.
