title The Island Meets the Auto
creator Stewart, Deborah
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description In 1908 Prince Edward Island stood alone in North America against 20thcentury mechanization by banning the automobile. Newspapers and motorists elsewhere expressed incredulity that such legislation should be passed. Was this a ludicrous, incomprehensible act as some Island historians have implied? Or can it be understood as a natural, even logical response to conditions prevailing in Prince Edward Island at that time?
