1925 Citroen b12 break

Third Floor - History

Known as a “break” in French, this station wagon was constructed of wood because the low demand for such a body type would not have justified an investment in expensive tooling to make it with steel like regularly catalogued Citroens of the day. Built entirely by hand, the body was crafted by Danos from Aurignac in southwestern France. Such vehicles were employed primarily by farmers and merchants before their usefulness as passenger-carrying vehicles became more widely recognized after World War II.
