the world sure has changed a lot in the past 100 years


  1. Lovely artwork.The sheild on the door says 'Nux Vomica'.
    Nux vomica is a tree. The seed is used to make medicine. Nux vomica contains strychnine and brucine, two toxic chemicals.

    1. tree in India. This makes no sense to me to have written on a car door on an art piece fr4om 1921.
      As the door piece is a coat of arms, it's related to the European family history representation traditions, and I can't figure out why it's on the door of this car at all.
