Cincinnati, OH
The Cheviot Buick Co. showroom was built in the early 1900s. I don't know when the white building was constructed or what its original use was. These photos are from 2005. By 2014, the showroom had been demolished. The white building was still there. [first three photos thanks George Feinthel] [map]

The Cleveland Cadillac Building, aka the Corlett Building, was built in 1914. It was designed by Knox & Elliott. From 1925-1965, it was home to Downtown Chevrolet. The building was being demolished when these photos were taken in 2009. Some of the building's details were saved and may be displayed on the property in the future.

This Miller-Van Horn Ford showroom was built in 1919. The front part of the building was used as a showroom and the rear was a repair garage. In later years, it housed a Dodge dealership. In 1985, the building was converted into architectural offices. The building houses the Karlsberger Companies when these photos were taken in 2009. The building became vacant in 2011. Since 2015, the building has housed CrossChx (now Olive), a health care software company. For more, see this website. [map]
