I pulled out the Duesenberg letterhead stationary and here's what I have. The earlier edition is quite simple. The only printing at the tops reads,"Duesenberg Bros. 3290 Fall Creek Blvd. Indianapolis, Indiana." Per the earlier posts on here, the plant was on washington Street so I have no idea what/where the Fall Creek Blvd is? Maybe a temporary address when they first arrived from New Jersey????
The later stationary is the neat one. Across the very top of the sheet is,"Built to Outclass, Outrun and Outlast Any Car On the Road" Under that and in the center is the Duesenberg 8 symbol (gold embossed with dark blue lettering). Under it is "The Grand Prix Car". To each side of the emblem is an embossed gold medallion (pretty ornate) mentioning Automobile Club de France award. The actual letterhead title reads "Duesenberg Automobile & Motors Co, Inc. Indianapolis, Indiana" There is no specific address on the later stationary.
Anybody have a clue as to what the Fall Creek address is all about???

Not the slightest clue. Those addresses I gave were the only ones I could turn up in the books I have (don't have the Roe or Elbert books).

So "Fall Creek" could be a "missing link"? <!-- s:o --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_surprised.gif" alt=":o" title="Surprised" /><!-- s:o --> Or maybe there were Duesenberg Brothers on the other side of town with a vegetable stand or shoe store or.... <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->
