I love this shot of a showroom full of '57 Lincolns--which were badly restyled '56s, pretty over the top, if not downright hideous, compared to Cadillacs of that year, and nowhere was pretty as '57 Imperials with curved side glass... but I digress.

This was the Berl Berry Lincoln-Mercury showroom at 3700 Wilshire, opened in 1951. I looked and looked for some better pics of it than the one below...

ebay.com

According to this ad, this is the Wilshire Blvd Berry dealership. Berl Berry was a Kansas City-based dealer with many franchises in the Midwest and California (also apparently quite a character).

Can anyone find better pics of this showroom? I haven't perused any aerials, but there must be something out there....
