Internal, expanding, self-energizing, three shoe brake used on all four wheels
of Packard vehicles. The cam at the top of the photograph spreads the two upper
shoes. This action on the upper left shoe which is not anchored to the backing
plate forces the lower shoe against the drum. The braking action is aided by the
rotation of the brake drum - thus a moving car creates its own braking energy.
Note the simplicity of construction and the constant pressure of each shoe against
the drum. Today's higher speeds demand better and more dependable brakes
