Definitely, since Wilshire runs east-west, these windows would be facing the south....

Hi,

I am uploading a photo of the fire that destoyed this beautiful wood-construction Art Deco building. Although it had fallen into bad decay, its destruction remains a great cultural loss.

When I see those (pre-fire) horizontal lines of windows and trim, what I think of is, "CORD!"

There do not seem to be many images of the dealership. I remember going down there with dad when a kid for some unrelated business and was impressed by the underground garage, something important happened there before. Just an empty cement structure back then.

Is there a link to a high resolution photo?

There is a hidden image in this one, check the hubcap reflection carefully, there is the Fuller transmitting tower.

A better scan of a better image may provide more details.

Great photo. Very likely a car as yet unsold. No license plate, stands across the street from the Fuller dealership. Supports the "812 rear bumper guards point down" school. And a rear-mounted spare!

Maybe the spare had just been installed and they drove the car on to the street to take a good photograph. Since all the rear-mounted spares look the same, the factory must have supplied a kit. Anyone have any evidence?
