While Theodore Roosevelt preferred the stately formality of a horse-drawn carriage, successor William Howard Taft motorized the White House fleet. The Roosevelt brougham remained in service until 1928, but assigned to less exciting duties like trips to the market. The brougham was finally replaced, even for these tasks, by the Ford Model A posed next to it in this photograph.
