By 1900 Charles E. Miller had moved from bicycles to motor vehicle accessories. The Horseless Age explained that when he opened his store at the height of the bicycle craze, "he even then realized that the future must inevitably be occupied by the mechanically propelled vehicle, which at that time was just being introduced from abroad." Because he was among the first to recognize the potential of the industry, his success was phenomenal. In 1903 the Cycle and Automobile Trade Journal said the firm represented "probably the largest collection of automobile parts, fittings and sundris to be found in the world." Among the items he sold that year was the Miller's Foot Power Horn. The magazine explained that an air pump fastened under the automobile's floorboard could easily be operated by the driver's foot. The firm also introduced "an entirely new line of imported automobile goggles, covering twenty-five or thirty different styles. Some of these goggles are lined with otter and other furs."
