Emil Stoewer

Emil Stoewer

Construction: about 1891. Architect unknown
Emil Stoewer lived on the ground floor in the years 1907–1917.

Emil Stoewer (1873 Szczecin – 1942 Berlin) – motorization pioneer, he and his brother run Stoewer-Werke AG factory. In 1897 he built his first vehicle – three-wheeled bicycle with an internalcombustion engine. The factory manufactured motor cars (including convertibles, limousines and sports cars), vans, lorries, buses, including double-deckers – omnibuses for London city transport.

Majority of them were exported. In 1930 Stoewer produced V5 model, recognized as the first serial German vehicle with the front-wheel drive. The company had interesting marketing ideas: race to Paris with a car of their production, participation in shows, test drives. Szczecin was called Stoewerstadt. Emil Stoewer left the company in 1932. Three years later the factory was engaged into the centrally managed army production.
