A History of Luxury

While limos certainly have a luxurious connotation and an air of stuffiness, the history of the limousine is far more exciting than a lavish vehicle funded by a few people with too much money on their hands.

The first limos originated in “Limousin” province of France in 1902, and the term limousine is actually derived from the region. But unlike the luxurious connotation of the name today, limousine’s actually kept the namesake because the vehicle’s covered compartment bared similar resemblance to the raised hood of the cloaks worn by shepherds in the region. Certainly humble beginnings for one of today’s markers in luxury.

The first stretch limos didn’t come until nearly 26 years later and over 4500 miles East, when a Fort Smith coach company named Armbruster created a vehicle that could fit an entire jazz orchestra in one cab. This quickly became the famous transport for band leaders such as Glenn Miller and Benny Goodmen, and their musicians, giving stretch limos the nick name “big band busses”.

Here at SouthEast Transportation, we understand the exciting and luxurious history of the limo, but also remember that the limo has served a wide variety of clients and groups over the years. SouthEast will work with you to find the perfect limo to fit your need, be it a band gig, a wedding, or a night on the town. In one of our limos, Greenville and Spartanburg will feel like the luxurious past, so celebrate this terrific history of the limo by booking with us on the web, or giving us a call at 864-877-2111.
