1928. 1948, remodeling. 900 Main St.

Particularly notable for its dramatic, curvilinear parapet fronting a truss roof, this Mission Revival showroom aspires to capture the fancy of passing motorists. Most exterior detail and a long canopy have been removed, the display windows have been closed, and the exterior has been repainted for conversion to retail use.
