Berger Chevrolet Showroom

Robinson Studio - 1949

Several people and a dog examine the newest car design since the World War II, when almost no models changes were made, at the Berger Chevrolet Showroom at 1451 Lake Dr SE. The glass-block windows at the side and front of the showroom allow light but no view from the street and fluorescent fixtures also provide some illumination. Ferns and floral displays are placed about the floor.
