former Firestone
Toledo, OH
This former Firestone appears to be from the 1920s or 1930s. The building was vacant when these photos were taken in 2009. It was still vacant in 2017. [map]

Firestone
Cleveland Heights, OH
This Firestone store was probably built in the 1930s. [map]

Firestone
Lakewood, OH
This Firestone has been here since 1947. I believe this building and canopy were built for a Firestone dealer before that. [map]

Kettering Auto Service [gone]
Dayton, OH
Firestone
Akron, OH
Kettering Auto Service had been here since 1960. The sign read "Kettering Auto Service" on one side and "Kettering Tire Service" on the other. It probably revolved. By 2018, the building was housing Redline Motorworks and this sign was gone.

The Firestone sign in Akron is installed on the roof of the former Firestone Tire factory. It is lit at night. For more, see this website. [map]

Firestone
Cleveland, OH
This Firestone store appears to be from the 1950s or 1960s. [map]

Howard's Tire Service
Sidney, OH
Grismer Auto Service
Dayton, OH
The Howard's Tire Service building looks like it was built in the 1930s. I don't know if it has always been a Firestone dealer. [map]

Grismer Auto Service was established in 1932 and has been a Firestone dealer since the beginning. The company now has about two dozen locations in Ohio. This sign was probably a double-sided pole sign or rooftop sign originally. This sign is lit at night. For more, see this website. [map]
