Besides the cars, its all the 'mom & pop' stores and motels that are on Main Street. Another vanishing icon, it seems.:(

Neat stuff! Recently on a local news show, they were talking about a long lost 6 minute film shot in Vancouver, BC (camera was attached to the front of a Street Car (Tram) by a Seattle film maker in 1907. The film was found in Australia a couple of years ago and has been returned to Vancouver, where I think they will use it to produce a DVD. The filmmaker, William Harbeck, was later hired to film the maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic. That fild and Mr. Harbeck, both perished on April 14th, 1912. Here is the link:

Joe,

I think that dealership picture popped up before in Randy's lengthy thread on dealerships. There may be information there if you search through it.

That dealership is in my collection of post cards that I have posted. It is in Santa Rosa, California.

Leonard,
I've seen that postcard before, also. I thought it was Petaluma?? Would you check to make sure? If it is Petaluma, that building may still be there.

That's cool if they could be "Santa Rosa's Largest Volume Automobile Dealer" in 1956(?) selling Studebaker, Packard, and English Fords!

What a cool pic! Leonard is right. That pic is in Santa Rosa. When I worked there in the 80's I used to drive by that place wondering what dealership it used to be. My old bosses favorite bar used to be right around the corner from there. [:p]
