Here is a picture of a local Auto Parts Store. Not sure when the picture was taken

Appears to be late 1920's or early 1930's. Great picture.

It is a neat picture. The cartoon car looks like '33-'34 to me. No telling how long it has been there but I would think the photo would be of the "new" store front. The radiator in the window at right looks like '30-'31 Model A. The tires could be that vintage too. 19" 18" etc. These parts would be for used cars. I would guess 1934 or 1935.

I noticed the "Goodrich Batteries" sign on the front door and the three digit phone number.

A bicycle expert could track down the year.

Bike looks to be late '30s. The streamlined bikes that Schwin made popular were done to boost demand during the depression. Others copied. This picture could be as late as 1940 given the bike .. in my humble opinion.

It's interesting that the signs in (or on) the window and on the cartoon car read, "Goodrich" and the two vertical signs alongside the Windows read, "GOOD RICH". I wonder why the difference.

In the middle of the Good Rich there is a design that you can not see to well in the photo.

Several of these appear for sale. Descriptions vary: '20's,'30's, '40's.

Oh No Dennis! Not more pun-ishment. We will get tired of that but you probably have a whole battery of them. Just kidding. I do get a charge out of them.
