Commuter Cars

The Tango is a glimpse into the future of commuting. Lane doubling, lane splitting, and perpendicular parking will become commonplace. Traffic-induced headaches and lost time will fade into the past. No more worries about safety as you’re ballasted for flat-out cornering stability and protected by a racing-certified roll cage designed to protect you and your passenger. Park in places you wouldn’t even dream of in a Mini Cooper. Emission-free and exciting, the electric Tango T600 is designed to beat most sports cars in the quarter mile with acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in just 4 seconds and a top speed of 150 mph!

Photographic images of albinos (and others with physical anomalies) were widely marketed during the nineteenth century and photographers who specialised in this genre were the studios of Charles Eisenmann of New York and Obermuller & Son also of New York. Matthew Brady, the famous civil war photographer had a studio opposite Barnum’s Broadway museum and he photographed many of the “acts” which worked there.
