Today’s photo takes us to Atlanta, Georgia for a view of the front and left-hand side of the Downing Nash Inc. building and used car lot. The image according to the source was taken in April of 1957, which was the last year that Nash, an automaker located in Kenosha, Wisconsin was in production since its start in 1916.
The three-story Downing building was set up with the showroom on the first floor and the service department and possibly a body shop located on the second and third floors. It appears the dealership may have been situated on “automobile row” in Atlanta because another new car agency selling BMW, Austin-Healey, Mercedes, and Jaguar cars is visible in on the right-hand side of the image below.
