Neat picture. With the white painted walls and skylights, it's a lot brighter in there than most period garage photos.
A fancy Coupe with step plates and parking lights. Also nice HCCT. Repairing a '24 or '25 might have been taken late twenties or early 30's. The photo does have a newer look than the dingy shop photos on the teen's.
First thing that hit me too Derek. Clean, bright & painted. Note the HCCT on the bench on the left.
My last shop was uninsulated and unfinished on the inside. Bare studs and trusses with garage doors with tracks that paralled the ceiling. When the doors were open, they blocked the light from the overhead flourescents. It was a learning experience. My present shop has insulated walls with white wall board (Can use dry erase markers on it) and sheet rock ceilings painted white. The garage doors are a true roll up type that roll into a coil just above the door. The light inside the shop is not even in the same ball park as my other shop. Both shops had four 2 tube flourescent fixtures.
