L Hwy Garage in Valpo “most modern” in 1934

LHA president Jan Shupert-Arick sent along a note that her friend Terry Goldsworthy found an interesting article on newspaperachive.com. The story called the Lincoln Highway Garage in Valparaiso, Indiana, the most modern station in 1934 by Motor Service, a monthly industry journal. (The news story itself is from an issue of the Vidette Messenger of Valparaiso.) Why? “It was realized that the automotive service of the future would not go to the screw driver and pliers mechanics, but would go to the shops where equipment for repairing the car was used as systrematicallyt as machinery is used where cars are built.” The article then lists all the modern marvels of the garage.
