Weaver Garage and Manufacturing Company

This collection consists of approximately 700 photographs and various issues of advertising and promotional literature as well as a small collection of photographs of wrecked automobiles all from the years 1926-1927 from the Weaver Garage and Manufacturing Company. This company was founded by the Weaver brothers in 1910 and eventually became "…the largest factory in the world devoted to the exclusive manufacture of garage equipment." The Dura Corporation eventually purchased the company in 1959 and closed its Springfield plant in 1973, moving operations to Paris, Kentucky.
