Nelson fenders
In the "Movies"
• Have you seen the moving picture of the new
Nelson Fender on display this week at the Em
press theatre? It's worth your while. It may
further be worth your while to know that it is
there because of the recognition by the moving
picture companies of the value and interest of
this invention as a world event. Here is the story
as it appeared in the Portland Oregonian on June
18, 1912, the time the picture was taken:

Moving picture people, while enterprising, are
conservative. Nothing gets on their films, with
the backing of their names, unless it possesses
merit.

money to bring it to the attention of the official
of every street railway system in America. We
