William Fox (Warwick HS - '61 - of VA) suggested you as a person to contact.  
I'm seeking images of this former dealership that was located at 330 25th Street.  
Do you know of anyone who might be of assistance in this endeavor?

I greatly appreciate your consideration of my request.

Thanks, Mary - let's find out!

...I have a request that I hope you can help me with. I am looking for pictures of Shackelford Dodge that was located in the 300 block of 25th Street. I have searched every site I can find but just cannot seem to locate any. I work for the City of NN and have asked Parks and Rec and have even placed a request through the Daily Press, none of which have produced anything. I have looked at the Old Stomping Grounds for some time now, so I decided to ask you if you or any of your colleagues may have any to share. Both my Father and Grandfather worked at Shackelford and over the years the pictures have seemed to disappear.

If you do not have any, I would ask if you could forward my request or point me in the direction of who may be able to assist me. I greatly appreciate your attention to this request and look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for everything. You can e-mail me at

Someone suggested searching for J. C. Holloway, Jr. possibly in Mobile, AL.  I haven't followed up on this.
Would like to hear about any contact with him.

Thanks, Fred!


In response to the request for pictures of Shackelford Auto Company, I was able to come up with a couple of ads from peninsula telephone directories. Sadly, no photos but will pass along a scan of the ads. One is from the 1945-1946 directory and the other is from June 1956.

Thanks so much, Mike!
