Those old buildings are so fascinating. We have lost so many.

Globe tires !! I wonder how many independent brands of tires there were "in the day" ?? How regionalized ? I always thought of tire manufacturing as a big deal - was it that hard to get into making tires say, in 1910 ?

Norm, I think he is straddling a tire.

Jay, can you read the dealership sign on the original?

Maybe we can track down where the dealership was and see if the building still stands. :-)

I might agree on the tire idea.

Strother Motors, Mount Sterling, KY. Part of the building still exists.

Having never heard of Globe Tires before I searched a few times for it. This came up on Ebay. FWIW:

Thanks for the search Rich ! It would be fascinating (to me anyhow) to see a catalogue of all the different tire brands before 1930, with ads and pictures of all the different tread patterns. The Globe tire looks like their tread pattern was designed with a sharp pocket-knife !! ; )

I just did a search of "Tire Ads 1920s" and up comes enough marvelous old ads with amazing artwork to look at for hours. The tread patterns are endless.
