Reed Brothers Dodge & Plymouth Service Repair Invoice
If you’ve had an automobile repaired recently, you might enjoy seeing this Reed Brothers Dodge Service Invoice No.7577 dated June 28, 1944. Reed Brothers address at the time was 600 East Montgomery Avenue Rockville. The fact that the phone number was just ’67′ gives a real feeling of how different life was back then.
H.L. England’s name is on the invoice and his car was a 1941 Dodge Coupe. Harrison L. England was active in land development of older Rockville, including Lincoln Park and Croydon Park. He was born in a building known as Hungerford Tavern on N. Washington Street and operated a business under the name of Suburban Properties. His father was John G. England, the first mayor of Rockville.
In 1930, Reed Brothers added the Plymouth line. The first Plymouth was built in 1928 and Plymouths were sold at Reed Brothers until 1969, when the brand was given to the Chrysler dealers.
