The Studebaker Center Salon, 2004

Photos from the King County Assessor's Office
The open area from the 1950s picture was filled in by the SCM (Smith-Corona-Marchant) Corporation during the mid 1960s. In the late 1960s, Smith-Corona typewriters were sold out of this building.

The Studebaker Center Salon--2112 6th Avenue, Seattle

This building was built in 1952, for the Anderson Buick Company. By 1959, following the introduction of the Studebaker Lark, this building became home to The Studebaker Center Salon. It should be noted that the address in the advertisement (above) is incorrect--it was actually located at 2112 6th Avenue. In 1966, it became home to a Smith-Corona typewriter dealer, which stayed there well into the 1980s.
