“Top Brass” explores Fred Crawford’s collection as it was when this museum’s predecessor—The Thompson Auto Album—first opened in 1943. Many of these cars are original to the collection and have been with us for over 80 years, while a few of them joined later but are indicative of the kinds of cars Crawford would have collected at the time. These are significant Brass Era automobiles, and many of these cars simply cannot be seen anywhere else.
