New London, CT

While on a recent visit to New London I came across this tire on the facade of this building.  The building itself looks in pretty good shape, and now housed a woodworking business.  I doubt the tire shown here has anything to do with woodworking, and must have been held over from a business which might have previously occupied this building.  My guess is that at one time this building either was a car dealership or a service station of some kind.  


  1. Bet you are right about this building being a car dealership. It was likely built in the 1920s from the looks of the wheel. They may have used a wheel and tire from a car to make a cement mold. Fine detail in your photo.

  2. A thought provoking pair of images today.
