Over a century ago, four individuals, one dog, and a car left Trenton to begin an historic drive around the world by automobile. Harriet White Fisher, owner of Fisher & Norris Anvils on Fair Street, purchased a 1909 Locomobile and financed the entire thirteen months journey. Mrs. Fisher was accompanied by her chauffeur/personal secretary Harold Brooks, her maid, butler and a Boston Bull Terrier named Honk-Honk.
**Rebecca Urban, guest curator of the exhibit, is the granddaughter of Harold Brooks.
