This Pierce-Arrow Convertible Victoria automobile was displayed at the New York Auto Show in 1931 at the opening of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The Model 41 was the grandest model built by Pierce-Arrow that year, and very few remain today. At the time Margaret Bourke White was hired to produce a photo journal for Pierce-Arrow. She was the first woman photographer hired by a major automotive manufacturer.
