If memory serves, that building was still there as of 15 years ago. This would be in NH.

Actually, I found a reference that said it was at 1339 Washington Ave., Portland, ME. Looks like it is now the site of a credit union.

The wrecker looks like it was built in/on a large touring car?? Bud in Wheeler,Mi.

I thought this might provoke another discussion about textured concrete block.

That is known as split face block and can still be purchased today. It makes a very nice looking building.

My Dad opened his station in 1920 and he built a wrecker from a Cadillac, wish I had photo of it.

Dennis I am going to have to disagree on the "split face block "term. While the split face blocks are vary similar to the blocks in the photo, the ones in the photo are cast blocks. The surface is like a "raised panel" I have an old Sears and Robuck block making machine that makes them. My machine has the "mold board" for the "rock face" style blocks as well as several other different patterns of faces. You just changed out the "mold board" to whatever style you wanted. My uncle and a cousin used to make the blocks by hand in the machine. They could make about 100 blocks a day ... I tried it once. It was to much like "real hard work" for my liking :-)

The North Deering Garage was at 1339 Washington Ave., Portland, Maine and was owned by George W. Gaubert.

It is no longer standing.....a credit union and parking lot occupy this location now.
