1910 Michelin Tire Advertisement
1919 Gabriel Snubbers Advertisement

The Gabriel Manufacturing Company of Cleveland, Ohio produced this advertisement in 1918. It appears that a Snubber is the forerunner of Gabriel shock absorbers. This ad was offering four Gabriel Snubbers for a Ford Model T. According to this ad "The coils of belting tighten and prevent abrupt or excessive rebound (shock) of the car, as the coils of rope around the tree tightens and hold the Bull."
