Simmons Motor Company [garage]

Description:

Photograph of the mechanics work area of the Simmons Motor Company garage. A myriad of mechanics tools and machines line the walls of the garage, but the floor is shiny and free of clutter. Signs hang above the work space reading "Austin's Largest Independent New Car Dealer / authorized to sell all makes" and "Interference makes a mechanic's work less efficient."
