Leon Thery, winner of the 1904 Gordon Bennett competition, driving a Richard-Brasier.
Richard-Brasier was the successor of the early French automobile maker Georges Richard from 1902. The firm made large chain-driven cars.
Léon Théry drove the cars to victory in the Gordon Bennett Cup races in 1904 and 1905. Georges Richard left the firm in 1905 to found a new firm, Unic, and the marque became plain Brasier.
In March 1906, the automobile was advertised in a national trade magazine as "Richard-Brasier" agent and sole importer located at 225-230 West 58th Street in New York City.
