Citroen B12 Taxi

In 1925 the new Citroen B-12 was billed as the first all-steel body car. Body panels and and fenders had been made by a metal stamping process that used large 100 ton presses to press steel steel into compound shapes. In fact this process had been in use for several years in North America. Judging by what appears to be chair caning on the body, indicates that they weren't quite comfortable leaving organic materials.
