W.T. Cooper’s Used Car sales lot was located in an unknown location in Tampa, Florida, when this photo was taken in 1952. The facility appears to look like many other used car lots of the period that usually have proper signage, a small office building, a few spot lamps and strings of incandescent light bulbs for showing off the stock during the nighttime hours.
Clean late model cars in good condition that include Buick and Chevrolet convertibles line the front row to entice possible buyers to stop in and visit the lot. The second row appears to be filled with late-1940s automobiles, and the third row contains older cars, and “back row specials.”
