The steps that led to electric cars began prior to the nineteenth century. The first battery was made by Volta in 1799. Ratcliffe Ward of London began operating an electric omnibus. Other inventors began producing a variety of electric vehicles. Andrew Riker and Philip Pratt each invented electric tricycles. In 1890, William Morrison of Iowa built the first truly successful electric carriage. William Morrison's carriage was a standard horseless carriage, built with high, spoked wheels to negotiate the rutted roads of still largely rural America. It featured rack-and-pinion steering and was capable of running for 13 hours at 14 miles per hour after a 10 hour charge.

Subjects on picture buttons reflects the awareness of art and literature in the late 19th century. Plays, operas, novels, poems, and paintings challenged the die-makers to create new button designs. People showed their approval for a new work of art by wearing buttons derived from it on a shirtwaist, coat, or cloak. Sometime just inspired by the world around them or the things that they enjoyed in life, a celebration if you will.
