    In an era when most cars were open and most roads were dusty, this dealer was promoting his more expensive (and presumably more profitable) sedans to ladies who wanted to arrive at their destinations with clean faces and clothes without the need to wear scarves and "dusters" over their good clothes. It's an interesting marketing idea at a time when nearly all cars were bought by men.

    Open cars back then were convertibles so closed cars were sedan/coupes, etc.

    i have to go with Mr. Lindstrom on this one, Brad.

    That salon is as in a room or estblishment of a business. Sort of the same as a showroom.

    haven't seen it before, Joe, but it kind of makes sense given the definition of "salon": http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/salon#English

    a reception hall.

    also noticed the mannikins all appear to be female.

    perhaps a sales pitch to women for a "closed car" to remain clean upon their return trip from a beauty salon?
