Here are three photographs that record another bit of St. Albans automotive history. All of these photographs were taken in and around Hungerford Ford.
In the two interior photographs from 1934, above and left, we can see the workshop at the dealership when it was located on Federal Street, in what is now referred to as the Napoli building. It is said that the interior of the buildings looks much the same even today. The vehicles are from the 1920s and 1930s. The Pasman Dry Cleaners Ford is in both of them as well, front and center in one at right, and at the far right in the photo above. Note the very elaborate hood ornament on the second car behind Pasman’s delivery van. Pasman Cleaners was owned by Louis ‘Ray’ Pasman and their shop was at 29 South Main Street.
In the last photo is Homer Hungerford in his beautiful 1910 Ford. This was taken around 1963 when he was about 80, and it appears to have been taken at the north end of the Hungerford Ford dealership when it existed on North Main Street. The Hungerfords moved their business to North Main Street during the 1940s, and locals told them they were making a mistake by moving out into the country! The building today has been divided up into multiple smaller businesses
