This photo of the Hoster-Roberts Ford car lot was taken in the mid to late 1940s (maybe a reader recognizes the year of the new car in the photo). This car lot was where the Kroger parking lot is on Guilford [I4 on map
]. The dealership was on Broad Ripple Avenue where Old Pros Table is today. You can see Mustard Hall in the background and the spires atop what is Brothers Bar and Grill to the left of it. The garage on the lot (in front of Mustard Hall, behind the Steck truck), according to my memory of what my uncle Glen told me, was a State License branch where customers could immediately get license plates after buying car.
