|Cummings Automobile Company|
115 East Pike Street, c. 1914
Mr. Cummings has discovered a few more photographs, including the interior of this company with rows of Model T cars parked along each wall. Note the sign that gives the prices of day storage (25 cents) and night storage (50 cents). But don't be deceived by those seemingly inexpensive charges. According to today's money value, 50 cents would be about $10. To get a tire filled would cost you 5 cents (about $1 today). Owning and maintaining a car has always been expensive!
We appreciate this and all donations, big and small, to our collection because our mission is to preserve our county's heritage. The generosity of donors helps us to build the collection and to share it with you.
