DescriptionImage of a snow covered street with an auto-supply/service shop on the corner. On the shop's walls are painted: "United States Tire Co. Service Branch, " "Nobby Treads Stop Skidding, " and "United States Tire Company Reliable Tire Repair Co." The display window of this shop shows tires. A billboard advertisement that reads: "Undisputed Record For Endurance Power of Silence Moline Knight J-E Whitten Representative 904 Main St. Phones 4422" stands on the roof of the shop. Next door is a shop with a sign for "The Stuart Motor Co. Lewis VI Oakland." The street that runs in front of the shop has street car tracks and a car is parked at the curb next to a street lamp and utility poles. Looking down the street, past the shop, houses and bare trees are visible. On the sidewalk for that side of the building are two gas pumps and a dog. A vehicle that looks like it could be carrying a gas tank is parked on the street.
