The big neon rooftop sign left little doubt what brand of tires were sold at Cheeseman’s, located at 898 Seymour Street in Vancouver, B.C. It’s July 20, 1936, and the information provided with the image says that it was a brand new establishment at the time. This is one of two auto related businesses owned by a Cheeseman in Vancouver that we have come across, the other being an Auburn agency. We will post a picture of that one here in the near future.
Such a clean and brightly lit facility must have been a welcome sight for motorists seeking fuel, oil or repairs at a late hour. In fact, the apparent lack of exterior doors makes us wonder if this facility was open 24 hours a day as many were back then. You can find more Goodyear related posts on The Old Motor and lots of gas station pictures, too. Images by photographer Stuart Thomson, courtesy of the City of Vancouver.
