Updated: Lander Motors, located in Atlanta, Georgia was operated by John Lander, a widely known auto dealer. Lander later went on to win a top national award for his sales agency and became the President of the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) in 1961, the year the dealership began selling the Rambler.
Today’s image taken on September 1, 1953, shows Samuel Martlin’s U. S. Tire Service shop located at the corner of West Peachtree Street and North Avenue. The parking lot is filled with cars, and includes some produced by automakers other than Dodge indicating that this was a popular tire shop in the area.

Update: Thanks to Ace Zenek and Gregory Wells we now know that Sam Martlin’s tire shop was not a part of Lander Motors that was contained in the building behind it.
