Brill "Master Unit"
Title:  Brill "Master Unit"
Description:  The Americus Hotel opened in 1924 and is at 549 Hamilton Street. While you can still find the hotel standing in this location, you can't rent a room in it any more (it's closed) and you can't take a ride on the Brill "Master Unit" that CKF photographed here in local service either. Car #953 was one of ten 950-Series Brill "Master Units" delivered in 1930. They had the large center windshield that made the cars so easily identifiable. Sadly, these units were all scrapped in 1953, even though their sister Red Arrow "Master Units" lasted into the 1980s.
