As the transportation industry transitioned from carriages to cars, many carriage manufacturers adapted to the change and adjusted their products and services to follow suit. In 1911, the Ware Brothers Company, publishers of The Carriage Monthly, published their Vehicle Year Book 1911 : Automobiles – Carriages – Wagons. In the Directory Department, there were more than twenty pages of listings for “Carriage and Wagon Builders Doing Auto-Mobile Work.” Similarly, advertisers and manufacturers of vehicle components and accessories began appealing to potential customers on both sides of the industry.
