Know Name or address??? was created by
I recently purchased a piece of Cord literature with the name
AD ODonnell (I'm not sure on the middle initial)
1027 Bay Street

Does anyone have any idea who Mr. ODonnell was?
Or where the address may have been?

Hi Jim, Thats O'Donnell-Mackie Auburn Cord Duesenberg Dealer in Toronto, Canada. Remember a few years ago Jim Brockman had a big article in the Newsletter about that dealership.

Thanks very much Mike, that adds another piece to the puzzle. I'm glad you remember all this stuff that was in the Newsletter, I'll start digging a reread the article.

Jim,

There is a photo of both O'Donnell and Mackie in the J Brockman Collection - L29 Archive, Photo JBA363. You will find a photo of the dealership in the Misc Archive, Photo JBA12.

CORDially, Mike

Member Robert Armstrong of Waterloo, Ontario, pointed out to me that he thought the O'Donnell-Mackie dealership looked familiar.

Type "577 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON" into Google Maps to see the building as it stands today. Home to, as far as I can tell, a tattoo parlor, a travel agency, and a health food store. Google Maps says it's home to "Boutique Seduction Love." <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: -->

1027 Bay Street apparently no longer exists; there is a plaza where it should be.
