This picture is from a postcard mailed to my mother in 1922. I'm sure this building no longer exists.post-36270-143141888995_thumb.jpg

The building is gone but the original factory sign is in a Connecticut collection. Bob

If you are interested in learning more about the Locomobile, you can find close to 75 photos of the marque, all the way from the early

steam days through the racing period (Old 16 above) and finally ending with the large Model 48 as seen below on The Old Motor.

Possibly the last cars built in the Locomobile factory were Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion 3 wheeled streamliners. This was in 1933 and 34.
