Hawkins Motors advertisement in 1931

Hawkins Motors at 1529 14th Street

We received an email the other day from Stuart asking about 1529 14th St. NW, now the location of the Matrix. After a quick search, we came up with about 100 advertisements in 1930-1931 for Hawkins Motors, which was located in the building back then. Here’s the advertisement that was running in The Washington Post for the company.
