Back then Edison and Theshler (sp) where fighting over which type of power should be used here in the U.S.. So motors where marked as being alternating current or direct current. Thesler won out due to the fact Alternating current or as we know it AC can be transformed to higher volts so it can travel miles and miles with out dropping much voltage but DC (direct current) can not do so. As for what it was used for any thing back in the day they needed powered like a pump for water or other such thing
