In the post-World War II era, the automotive industry was a center of innovation and opportunity.

With the American public clamoring for new vehicles and new technologies and materials readily available from wartime developments, the time was ripe for bold ideas, no matter how unconventional they might seem.

One such idea came from the creative mind of Indiana-based used car salesman Glenn Gordon "Gary" Davis.

Taking inspiration from the custom designs of renowned IndyCar designer Frank Kurtis, Davis introduced the Davis Divan, a luxurious three-wheeler.

This futuristic car with a fuel-efficient aluminum body and huge bench seat was marketed as a revolutionary concept that promised a glimpse of the automotive future, all at an affordable price of just $1,000.

In today's world, we are well aware of the dangers of radium and the deadly dangers of radiation. But there was a time when radium was revered as a wonder substance that was believed to have health benefits.

 

In the early 20th century, radium paint began to be used on many household items without thinking.
 

However, this changed when factory workers, who were often exposed to radium paint, began falling ill and dying.

 

These workers, known as the Radium Girls, often became victims of radiation poisoning while others fought against it. Ultimately they won, but had to pay a heavy price for this victory.
 

When radium was first discovered, it was believed to have health benefits. Radioactive treatments were popular, and the harmful effects of radium were not yet understood.
