1905-2005. 100 YEARS OF MOTORING PROGRESS
DE SYON JOELLE, SION BRIGITTE
The Geneva International Motor Show turns 100 in 2005. The centennial has witnessed the transition from steam to gasoline, from horse to sedan, and from cobblestone to asphalt. The Geneva Show is a special spectator of such changes, a gauge of new technical, esthetic and economic trends, and a place of interaction for professionals, amateurs, buyers, and plain onlookers. This work is a history of this extraordinary event, a trip through brands and models, a reflection on technology, and a look at both the social impact and the sports achievements of the automobile. An exceptional imagery in color and black and white covers all these aspects and pays homage to an event which plays a central role in the development of the automobile.
