This image shows the art deco influenced exterior of the Carter Buick Garage that was located at Ocean and Ashley Streets in downtown Jacksonville. This was photographed in 1947 by Loyd Sandgren. The original print is a contact print from an 8X10 inch negative. According to the photographer’s note the building was torn down in the 1960’s.  Part of the note states that the building had previously been used as a movie studio when Jacksonville was a booming silent film production center but I am having difficulty confirming this. I will update the post when I have additional information.
