Northern Auto Sales

A picture I found this morning from the inside of our dealership from the 20's. They also sold tractors at our dealership.

I had this picture. My Grandfathers neighbor was the head mechanic for years at the dealership.

I like the overhead "crane" track above the tractors almost as much as the "cash only" sign. Great pics!

My Grandfather had a sign in his shop that said Cash Only, your face looks honest but I can't put that in my pocket.

The overhead track was moved to the west wall. Techs still use it, Louie used it today to put a transmission up on the work table.

I have posted this before. Bill of sale for my Great Grandfather, he bought a used truck for $123.00 I believe in 1937. I found it up stairs in the dealership in a box a couple years after my father passed away.

One more to bore you with before bed. The original sign upstairs yet. Maybe get it down for the 100 year anniversary this year?
