Car Dealership



We wrap up Denver Week with this picture of a Car Dealership. The picture was taken in about 1900. The dealership was for the Felken Cycle Company.

  2. I like the seats. It looks like they just cut the legs off the living room couch and plunked it down into the car. I found out that when cars were starting to get popular most of the first dealerships were actually bycycle shops. I saw an old picture of my hometown Stoughton Ma and there in the town square was Leehan Bycycles from around 1885. As a kid growing up in the 60's I always knew of them as Leehan Ford. They went from Columbia bycycles to Ford cars and were one of the original Ford dealerships in the country.
