Early car dealer - This photo in Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," shows Hinsdale's first automobile dealership. "This was Hinsdale's first automobile dealership, a Ford agency built in 1917 at the southwest corner of Garfield and Hinsdale Avenues, operated by the multifaceted carpenter/contractor/realtor Henry Buchholz and his brother. Within months of opening, Henry Ford stopped for a spontaneous visit on his way to meet with International harvester's Alexander Legge at his Hinsdale Home."
