Triangle Motors service truck (1934)

Some time ago I wrote about the Triangle Motors, the most stylish auto salon in Shanghai. Yesterday, I found this photo of a auto service truck from this shop. Here it is positioned on Rue Bourgeat, close to the corner of Route Mercier, with the Cathay Mansions (left) and the French Club (right) at the background.

Another view, with the Lyceum Theatre on the left. The Triangle Motors was on the left of the Lyceum Theatre, out of the frame.
