Even though there were around 500,000 cars registered in 1910, they were mostly owned by Doctors, Lawyers, Politicians, and the wealthy. Very few middle class people had them and the poor could not afford a car. The vast majority of the poor rode horses, or horse and buggy. The city poor walked or took the trolley or some sort of public transportation.
