As part of our series on Historic Duncan Advertisements, Automobile Advertisements, 1940-1949, here is a 1946 advertisement for Firestone Tires and its Victoria and Duncan dealers. In 1946, the Firestone Tires dealer in Duncan was Gray Motor Company, whose Duncan dealership was located at 261 Government Street, at the corner of Government Street and Kenneth Street.
Notice the “Tire Rationing Removed” in the upper right corner of the advertisement. Tires had been rationed during World War II (1939-1945).
The Gray Motor Company dealership was located at what is now 251 Government Street. Here is a map showing that location:
