Featured Photos: Reed Brothers Service Dept circa 1960
This photo of the inside of Reed Brothers Dodge service area was taken circa 1960. At the time this photo was taken, the dealership was located at the intersection of Veirs Mill Road and Rockville Pike.
Along the back wall inside the service area is the entrance to the new car showroom, parts counter and the cashier’s window. The new car showroom and service department were connected by large double doors, which was how new cars were moved in and out of the showroom. Above the cashier’s window is a small door that opened into the parts department storage area for the stock of tires. Reed Brothers was also a Goodyear tire retailer.
The roof is supported by steel trusses, which keep the entire floor free of pillars and makes the movement of cars easier. Also, most of the light for the area is provided by skylights and windows.
