Default Beverly Shear Co, So. Chitown, ILL.

Good folks at Beverly. Quite the old shop to see, 1920's, with "basement passage" out the back, under alley and over to "used to be speakeasy" bldg.
Old wooden parts boxes etched "Beverly Shear Co."
And the back basement room with all the old first-run, last run, and proto stuff.
Penciled invoices.
Far cool.
Glad they got picked up by the Bros.
