1920 Newspaper Ads

The following advertisements, distributed by the Lambert Automobile Company in the July & August 1920 editions of the Washington Post are among  the earliest advertisements in which the Rockville Garage appeared. Initially, Reed Brothers sold Oldsmobile and Hudson, along with Dodge.

Dealers are listed in fine print at the bottom: note Rockville Garage, Rockville, Md, which I have highlighted in yellow.

About Reed Brothers

I am a co-owner of the former Reed Brothers Dodge in Rockville, Maryland. Lewis Reed, the founder of Reed Brothers Dodge was my grandfather. We were a family-owned and operated car dealership in Rockville for almost a century. I served in the United States Air Force for 30 years before retiring in the top enlisted grade of Chief Master Sergeant in July 2006.

      I think old newspaper ads are fascinating, too! I found these old ads on NewspaperARCHIVE – an online archive of historical newspapers published from 1753 onwards. Thank you so much, Madilyn, for visiting our blog and leaving a your nice comment!
