Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Automobile Club of France (French: Automobile Club de France) (ACF) is a men's club founded on November 12, 1895 by Albert de Dion, Paul Meyan, and its first president, the Dutch-born Baron, Etienne van Zuylen van Nijevelt. The Automobile Club of France, also known in French as "ACF" or "l'Auto," was initially located near the Paris Opera and benefited from a villa in the Bois de Boulogne. In 1898, the club moved to the exceptional site of the former "Place Louis XV" (currently Place de la Concorde) in order to offer its members more comfort in a prestigious setting. The club still occupies more than 10,000 square meters in the Hotels du Plessis-Belli re and Moreau, both located between the Hotel de Crillon and the Hotel de Coislin, where France signed a treaty by which it became the first nation ever to recognize the independence of the United States.show more
