Auto Clinic
Saratoga and St Paul Street


As often seen in old postcards of the area, there was actually a old Chrsyler / Plymouth dealership on the southwest corner of St Paul Street and Sarartoga Street, used later as a parking garage, and then razed and a hotel going up on the site. Old advertisements mention that the Auto Clinic was the only repair and service station in the Downtown area, open, nights, Sundays and Holidays. The ad also mentioned they were Baltimore's oldest Chrysler and Plymouth Dealer, but I haven't found any earlier references to them as of yet. The Service Center was located at 816 - 822 North Calvert Street,which is still there, as a garage.

A.D. Anderson
2600 North Howard Street



There were several Anderson dealerships listed around the  City in the 1940's. The location on Howard was one, but Anderson Olds at North Avenue and Belair Road was another. During the 40's and 50's, the Belair Road area was popular for many dealersips as they moved out towards the County. Anderson Chevrolet was located at 4626 Edmondson Avenue, just west of the Edmondson Village Shopping Center, and stood for years until it was finally torn down in the 1990's, to make way for a shopping center.

Edmondson Avenue at Hilton

This old dealership building stood for years, and in the 1980's was finally converted into an office . It is impossible to believe the building was once a car sales lot, but they actually had cars on the roof of the building for sale which passing traffic could see.

   The site is now a McDonald's, but there are garages that might have been part of the dealership just to the North.

City Olds

 Now the site of the North Avenue Motel, the old dealership can be seen in this snowy picture, believed to have been taken back in the 1940's. City Olds moved south a few years later, to Biddle and Cathedral Street , and was the last dealership on Cathedral Street, surviving to the 1980's.
