This is a quite interesting postcard and after having spent a little time to research it a bit, a few details were found out that give us a better insight into The Sinclair Garage. Record has been been found of it as far back as 1911, when this postcard is dated “Papa and Me”, evidently by the little girl standing on the left side of the photo. It was found that it was at least in operation up until the 1920s and possibly later. The garage was recom-mended and listed, as seen in the 1918 Automobile Blue Book, just below on Middle St. in Portsmouth.
The garage handled the Studebaker product line at the time and the road-ster and touring car seen just behind it in the photos on the left, are the small 20 h.p. Flander’s that the company offered. The roadster has a sign hanging from its running board, that is lettered “Flanders 20”. Just behind the two may possibly be an EMF, another well known car that Studebaker was involved in at the time. Can any of our readers tell us if this grand building has survived? The Old Motor photo.
