Editors Note: We will be taking the Fourth of July holiday weekend off and will return again on Monday morning July 8, 2019 with a new feature. We hope that all of our readers have an enjoyable weekend.
Today’s feature images of Wade Ford date to September 26, 1963, and contain the Dealership buildings and car lots that were located on both sides of Spring Street NW in Atlanta, Georgia. The photos were taken on “Ford Day” which was when the new 1964 models were introduced to the general public.
This area of Spring Street in Atlanta was filled with car dealers during this period. In addition to the Wade Ford buildings visible on both sides of the road, past it on the left-hand side was Harry Sommers Chrysler, and on the right side Boomershine Pontiac. In the last photo (below) the Bill Spreen Volkswagen “Truck Department” is visible on the right-hand side.
