There it is again. The historical connection between Model Ts and ice cream !! 1912s ? Fore-doors on the one on the left?
I wish there was a street sign. Almost looks
like Court St. or Broadway?
tourihg is 9 or 10 charley
Address for Perry Auto in a 1920 directory is 11 Post Office Square. Makes sense - I think the sign says Post Office Square Bowling Alleys. An ad in that directory for Perry Auto Company says "behind the post office."
J J Nichols Auctioneer is listed as rear of 30 Court St, and the Ice Cream guy is listed at 16 Howard St.
All in the same general area, but I can't find any buildings that match in modern pictures.
Post office square is just off Taunton Green and goes around the post office.
The Taunton daily Gazette was behind the post office and there were businesses to the right side of the post office.
I suspect that this was on the s treat her to,the right.
Since it goes down hill slightly
Certainly not related to the Perry Auto Lock:
I remember when the Ford garage was on Weir Street in Taunton.
The owner offered to trade a 57 hard top convertable for the 19 T that I now have.
I am happy that dad said no!
Frank Shutoff was one of the mechanics and worked on the NASCAR stock car we played with.
He was good friend with a guy named Ralf as in Ralf Moody of Holeman and Moody. Ralf was the technical guy and Holeman was the business man of the partnership.
When Ralf visited his mom he would spend some time helping us with our car.
I sure miss those days!
1913 business directory of Taunton lists the Perry Auto Company as being located at Post Office Square.
