This is a ca. 1930 image, taken by amateur Philadelphia photographer Claude Alexander, showing the interior of a service station, featuring automotive supplies, replacement parts, car service ramps, and a vaulted ceiling.  The business provides service for brakes, batteries, lubrication, and uses the Bee-Line System for frame and axle straightening and wheel alignment.  The overhead sign reads:  "Are Your Wheels Properly Aligned--Have Them Checked Here! and Save Your Tires."  For an additional image of this business, see item #pdcal00013.
