Today’s featured image dated to 1949 by Vintage Philadelphia contains Irvin Sachs New and Used Car lot located at 2535 North Broad St. in Philadelphia, PA. For the most part the business specialized in buying and selling post-war-late-model used cars. Sachs was in the business as early as January of 1944 when “Billboard” magazine reported that he was sponsoring a daily news show on radio station WPIL in the city. A later reference stated that in 1959 Sachs car lot was at 4539 Chestnut St.
Amazingly the buildings have survived with additions to the garages on the left-hand side of the property and the lot is still in use in the automotive trade. Today the Matrix Auto Center a “10-minute oil change” business that also performs “Body Fender & Frame Work” is located there.
