It also sold new and used motor cars well into the 1960s eventually becoming agents for Morris Motors amongst other things. J. Pomeroy purchased the business of Acme Coach Factory around 1913. This photo is from a printing block (a bromide?) The motor car facing is an Overland of c.1912. The photo is said to be c.1920 but could well be earlier.
