As formal as its name implies, the Opera Brougham has the severe elegance of tile lilt ultra-smart. The snug curves of streamline fashion are scorned for the sharp-edged, stiff-backed character of the original horse-drown Brougham. The running-hoard is abolished; steps to the front and rear compartments take its place. Pillar lamps of the old-fashioned coach type give the finishing touch of "correctness" to file square-cornered exterior. Only the sharp-cutting sweep of the elongated fenders concedes to the changes of the last few years. The driver's compartment, has a collapsible roof curtain, glass windows.
