Entrican Motors and Gas, Oil and Tires

From the John Holly Williams Collection
The above photos -- dated 1/21/1954 -- are in a collection marked Entrican Motors.  The library staffer seemed to be questioning the inclusion of the service station photo with the Entrican Motors shots.  After this was posted, relatives of the late Louie Entrican report that the service station was indeed part of his automobile dealership.

This photo was taken by Mr. Williams in 1948.

The Entrican Motors building, at E. Monticello and N. First Street, is now home to an insurance agency and a hair salon, among other businesess.  Directly across the street, is Foster's Chevron service station and food mart where the above old Standard Oil service station once stood.
