Check out these photos of the Wilshire Super Service in Santa Monica, California and be sure to click on them to see the great detail in the enlargements. With the automobile boom there was much income to be derived by large scale and professional auto care.

There was a very nice waiting room and note the bee hive radio on the table. This business shows how far the automobile industry had come by the late 20s from its humble and rough beginnings at the blacksmiths shop.
