So I have a prewar picture of this car that I paid almost 200 bucks for.   It was the only one I had ever seen prewar so I stepped up.   Then this comes along.

Eddie Peabody  "the banjo king" 

Eddie Peabody with his new Lincoln Continental, receiving the title from Lucien S. Hanks, general manager of Kayser Motors, Inc., 1501 Monroe Street. Eddie Peabody was known as "the banjo king" in Madison.

 

Great building.  If I've identified the location correctly, it is now home to a pretty hideous piece of modern architecture:

Neat interior shots of what seems to be another Kayser dealership at a different location a few miles away.
