Misc Photos

I bought a number of factory photos of Moon, Diana, Windsor, and Ruxton cars while I was at Hershey and I have some photos from EBay purchases. Some I can scan and post as soon as I get them done. Some of them I will need permission to scan them and to show them on this website. Over the next few weeks I hope to scan the ones I can and to get approval to scan the others and post them on this page. Please check back from time to time to see the progress.

Also, if you have any factory photos of the Moons or even of the buildings and other family photos over the years, please send them to me and I will post them on this page.

Thank you

    Is there any Books on the Moon Car Factory?

    • mooncars says:

      Great Cars of the Great Plains (1995) by Curt McConnell has an excellent chapter on the Moon Motor Car Company history. Another good read about Moons is in the Automobile Quarterly Vol. 25 No. 4 (1987) written by Andrew Young and Carl Burst III, the grandson of the last legitimate President of the Moon Motor Car Company.

    What years were the moon produced?
    Address off Factory?

    • mooncars says:

      Moon Motor Car Company made cars from 1906 to 1930. They included Moon, Diana, Windsor and Ruxton. The company owned an entire city block at Main and Cornelia Street on the northern side of downtown St. Louis. That area is near the McKinley Bridge but the buildings were demolished in the 1970’s and is just a truck parking area now.

        I thought they turned the building into condo’s.

      • mooncars says:

        The “Moon” condo building was the Moon Brothers Carriage Company building at 17th and Morgan Street. Joseph Moon and his brother, John Moon, started that company in the 1880’s. Joseph Moon left that company and created the Joseph Moon Buggy Company and then the Moon Motor Car Company. John Moon’s father-in-law joined John to continue the Moon Brothers Carriage Company which I believe closed up sometime in the teens. That carriage building is what was turned into condo’s.

    Eran coches fantásticos, lástima que la fabrica ya no existe, yo restaure uno de estos modelos y choque con la falta de datos, sobre todo del motor, pero por suerte quedo muy bien y actualmente está radicado en Córdoba.

    English translation from Google Translate:
    Cars were great pity that the factory no longer exists, I restore one of these models and collision with the lack of data, especially the engine, but luckily am very well and is currently based in Córdoba.
