The Gaylord Motor Co. was located at 2120 East Colfax Street in Denver, Co.

"Automobile Topics" February 3, 1917 - refer to last two sentences in paragraph.

It appears that it was later Carpenter Chevrolet and then Rogers and Platt Chevrolet.

Click on the links to see more photos. When the web pages open, you can zoom in using the slider:

Gaylord Motor Co. - the license plate on the non-Ford in the back appears to be 1917 (dark over light) so that would date the photo. The cars on the right appear to be brand new.

They probably both took the same amount of time to get you a chicken dinner, though.
