This is a photo of the McLaurin Hudson dealership located at 712 South State Street in Jackson, taken on July 23, 1947. The owner of the dealership was Max Louvois McLaurin. All know about him thus far is that he was a 1929 graduate of Mississippi College. This image came from a very interesting website dedicated to Hudson automobiles in general, and according to it the building still exits as the Big 10 Tire store. I went by yesterday to look at it and there are similarities, but if its the same building it's been heavily altered, which is too bad because the original dealership, as you can see, was - to use a very technical architectural history term - really, really cool. If any of you have more info about this building I would be interested in hearing it.
