Cool image. What is the car on the far left?
Same make as the one in the center of the photo. Not a Ford!
Looks like they had a big fire at one time.
Not on the outside -
Big Cloud at that moment in time. I'll get a better pic on a sunny day.
I'm just noticing the very characteristic black marks made by the smoke coming out the front doorway and blackening the bricks. Looks like more than a cloud shadow, but I could be all wrong.
Maybe - I'll ask - in the meantime...
Guess that Google doesn't want me to "cut and paste" the link.
If you're curious, "Google" 191 Village St, Concord NH.
"Cheney's Apple House Furniture....
or maybe "copy and paste all the symbols below.
Next nice day, I'll take the T over and get a current photo.

COMPANY HISTORY (From their website)
Cheney's Apple House Furniture Longtime Concord residents may remember our store as the area's first Ford dealership north of Boston, or as a roller skating rink, or as a cold storage apple house for Gould Hill Apple Orchard. Or, perhaps, as Cheney's Furniture. Our ties to the community are long-standing, so you know you can count on us.
No fire in present owners memory...and from the appearance of the building now, really doesn't look like there ever was one.
Thanks for posting Dave, I've been waiting to see a photo of your good looking car. When I delivered gas (10300 gallons per load) one of my stops was the Citgo up the road and I would always pass by this building on my way back into Concord. Have you noticed the great old firehouse heading to Boscawen on the same side as the Citgo station?
PS: I see you have added to your fleet of Ts
I acquired this key chain tool a number of years ago at a yard sale when I lived in Penacook. It has a flat blade for screws, a bottle cap remover, and a square hole for the valve on your Prest-O-Lite tank.
Nice collectible Bill. The designer made it look like his dog which is a bonus.
