Two dealerships of old

With Indian announcing a new dealer in Hobart last week it seemed relevent for them to reproduce a picture of the old Hobart dealer Absolom Motorcycles with group of riders from the Indian Motorcycle Club of Victoria on tour in the twenties (defunct in the forties & no relation to IMCA). The one thing that is amazing is Rhodes Motors that sold Cadillac/Oldsmobile/Chev/Pontiac as well as a number of motorcycle brands as they were the importers for the whole of Australia their building still exists in Melbourne not more than a block from the new Polaris/Indian dealership today, although they don’t sell cars and Indians only these days it seems ironic that Indian’s main dealership is located where it all started
