I guess when both the big doors were rolled open, ya couldn't get in the front door of the "office".
My shop is built that way, you just go in the big door and turn left in my case, right here, the office is no doubt connected to the shop.
I figured that both doors worked but I couldn't resist making the comment.
I had an uncle who had a barn like that. I made the same statement to him. I got back: "What's it to you-- get in there and move some hay. Besides, I didn't build it; bought this place from the neighbor". He always said something like that with a smile. Once I did something dumb helping out on the ranch. I was contrite at dinner. He looked at me and said: I hear you did something really stupid today. Next time for God's sake call me first so I can come and watch. A big grin and a slap on my shoulder. Never a cross word; bless his heart. Sure miss him after all the years. This photo brought back memories of him and summers in north Idaho.
At least two of those cars are Maxwells.
Can't tell what the obstructed car is on the far left - not enough detail.
When the big door is open the cut out is where the door to the office is. There is a bottom half that swings open for access or you can just open the inner door for ventilation and keep the dogs, horses, chickens, neighbors, whatever out of the office. If you look closely you can see the little wooden turn piece that holds the lower half of the door closed. Very typical of early livery stables, which is probably what this building was before it turned into the Maxwell dealership.
Perhaps they were holding a protest against Ford?
Both of those cars are bent and twisted.
Unless Independent front suspension came out years and years before, the car on the left of the pic needs a little "summit" to fix er up.
The one on the right, kinda needs a little TLC to untwist that body..
Note the Maxwell tin sign n the shop window.
