Today we return to Valley Street in Lawrence, Massachusetts with photos taken before an urban renewal project containing views of two service stations and a body shop. The earlier photos in Part I were dated to 1958 by the source, although the license plate on the rear of the dark-colored Pontiac two-door sedan on the bottom right of the lead image was issued in 1957. The Flying A Service station on the left was located at 25 Valley St.
The first image (below) contains the Lawerence Auto Station that was located at 95 Valley St. and earlier photos of it posted in “Part I” contained views of the left side of it and the right-hand side. The second image below shows a partial view of Ideal Auto Body located at 233 Valley St. that used “Infra-Red” lamps to speed up the drying time of paint jobs.
