His specialty was Hudsons and Studebakers.
The Hudson Motor Dealership
On August 18, 1946, Leon A. Mawson opened his first showroom on Main Street at 11 Dronningens Gade.
He had been selling Hudson’s since 1937, but this establishment was his very own, an accomplishment he was quite proud of.
Like many of the stores during this time period, there was always a mishmash of unrelated items being sold.
Along with a brand new Super Terraplane Hudson Sedan, were radios, Coty cosmetics, Baldwin pianos, Kohler lights and various hardware items. 🎹 🛠 📻
The attempt to be all things to all people didn’t last. By the 1950’s, Mr. Mawson converted the space to a very popular ice cream shop called, Mawson’s Coffee Shop.
Here are a few clippings about Hudson Motors and the new showroom from the newspapers. 📰
