From the June 1963 Studebaker News:

If Bill ever gets another high-performance Studebaker to replace his R1 1963 Daytona, he had better be on the lookout for Chief Dremak in neighboring Talmadge! :QQ: :) ;) :cool: BP

I almost didn't click on this thread, but I'm glad I did! Very interesting to see the picture from right here where I live, Oswego County. I didn't recognize any of the names mentioned. I wish the picture had more background so I could see if I knew the building.

:woot: Cool, Bob; I didn't realize you lived in Oswego County. 'Glad I didn't crop that as I might have, but there was no need to.

I've never been there, but aren't there at least three clues to the building and location?

1. The photo was probably taken at the Studebaker dealer? (Note the banners high above the first cars.)

2. That dealership would probably have been located in what is now an older part of town, where dealerships used to be.

3. The photo was probably taken in the Oswego County seat.

Of course, the only problem now with locating an old building like that is the possibility that it has been demolished, so you'll never find it!

To wit:

What would become my Dad's Packard-Nash-Studebaker building in Paris IL, taken circa 1954, before they moved the dealership there in June 1955:

...and that same "property" today:
