That's probably in the late 20's and early 30's and no later then the 40's. There is a 6 cylinder head gasket hanging on the wall along with a 4 cyl. head gasket.

Those appear to be white or grey tires on the right. The 6 cylinder head gasket belong to Rob's K. :-)

Well Dave, there's only three workers. The guy on the left is wearing a tie, so he must be the boss and consequently doesn't actually do anything. :-)

They don't have a jack so three guys hold up the car while the other one changes the tire! Only three more tire changes and they will have made enough money to buy one.

It has to be '20s. Not a tire in the place is under 21 inch rim size.
Great photo! Thanks Jay!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Note they don't have a cash register. I have it. It's a $39.99 brass National originally sold to Aurora (Ill) Vulcanizing Co in 1911.

In those days a simple cash drawer was most common and built into the counter. The fancy Registers are just for automatic totaling, recording/receipts etc. If one can write a bit and add a bit,you didn't need a cash REGISTER.
