What's up with the guy who decided to park on the sidewalk? :-)

I bet there is a gas pump and he did not wait for some other car to move.

In those days most auto dealerships sold gas right by the front door. Scenes like this show why filling stations are designed the way they are today, with cars able to pull up on both sides of the pumps.

For fear of being politically incorrect, when I was a kid growing up on the lower east side of Manhattan we called that a Puerto Rican oil change. Pull up on the curb over a sewer drain and pull the plug!

Garage to funeral home. You get fixed one way or another.

They call it Milton-Freewater, Oregon, today and there is no sign of the T's marking their territory. Most of the buildings on the right survive but none of the customers.

"Garage to Funeral Home"
At least when it was a Garage dead things came back to life. :-)

I am currently working on a 1916 Runabout that came from a barn about 5 miles from that "Ford Garage." It was all in pieces when I was asked if the pile of Model T parts "Dad" left behind was worth anything. Still a few months away from getting it back on the road. Picked up the block from the machine shop this morning, ready to go for babbit as soon as the EE crank I had is checked.
