Though you wouldn't know it from the preceding group of employees, apparently there were spiffy "Chevrolet service technician" uniforms available to the guys at the garage.  Here my father wears one alongside a 1938 truck.

Another copy of this photo has shown up on another website, labeled as “In front of Shoemaker Chevrolet looking toward Shelby on Main.”

Below, I’ve inserted the old picture into its appropriate place in another recent Google Street View of Main Street.  The building behind the tree on the right appears to be the former aforementioned M.S. Myers Machine Shop & Garage.

The photo of my father is dated Friday, February 4, 1938.  Was that his last day of work in Falmouth?

Later that month, he had a new job in Cambridge, Ohio, where he was introduced to the 25-year-old telephone operator Ann Buckingham on February 28, 1938.  He would marry her after a courtship of 2½ years.
