Looks like late 20s or early 30s. I wish I could walk into that photo for a visit.

Hopefully they did not have to perform too many oil changes when the wind was blowing.

That's OK. If a little bit of oil missed the catch pan nobody cared. Today they'd cordon off the area while a bunch of guys in moon suits cleaned up the drips.

Another great pic Jay! That is sooo cool looking. Love the old light fixtures and pumps. Lots of Model A's compared to T's.

What kind of car is that in the far left of the picture? Its a big sedan with steel disc wheels.

John - The car in the far left in the picture could be a Nash. We have a couple of '26 - '27 Nash Sedans in our area and they look like that.

Notice how the back side of the left front fender comes almost straight down to the running board. That part of the fender is not swept back at an angle to the running board like even the '28 Model A's, which was a basic style evolution for all makes at that time.

Look at the left front fender of the car up on the hoist which does have a swept back fender design.

Just not enough detail in the picture to be sure of much. The big sedan could be a Nash, or a Studebaker, or actually any of a dozen other marques (Dan H, you out there?). The smaller sedan (looks like a two-door) I think is a Whippet. The big modern car on the lift could be any of a dozen marques circa '29 to '31.
Just not enough detail.
But neat photo!
Thank you Jay!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
