DescriptionImage of a brick auto repair and accessories shop. The repair shop is on the left with a car in the open door and two more cars parked on the brick street in front of the shop. Four men are standing by the cars, and a gas pump is on the sidewalk near the first car that has "Dalzell Accessories and Service" painted on the door. The auto accessories shop is on the right side of the building with tires and other accessories in the display windows. A woman is standing in front of the shop door. Two signs are suspended from the wall and they read (left to right): "Dalzell Auto Repair Shop, " and "Frank J. Dalzell Auto Accessories-Auto Repairing-Used Cars Sold on Commission." The display windows have curtains and "Hawkeye Tires" painted on the windows. A Michelin man is in one window. The back of the photograph notes this as 103 S. University in 1920 and the 1986 site of Avanti's and La Gondola.
