Rare car

I wasn't familiar with this marque, so I looked them up. Well, it turns out that today, while some cars are still around, only a single sedan survives. And, with somebody taking sledgehammers to them, it's no wonder.

Van Ness & Fern

According to a 1919 directory, Mitchell Motors was located at 1417 Van Ness with the Studebaker dealer up and across the street at 1560 Van Ness.

[The building at the corner, 1395 Van Ness, is the same, built 1916 and now thoroughly remodeled. -tterrace]
