As part of our series on Historic Victoria Advertisements, Automobiles & Transportation, 1920-1929, here is a 1926 advertisement for Dupont Duco and William Mable, 717 Johnson Street, advising that William Mable is the “Only Authorized Duco Agent in Victoria” and that 717 Johnson Street is a Dupont Duco “Authorized Auto Re-Finishing Station”.
This advertisement is particularly interesting in that it shows the transition of the long established William Mable Carriage Making business into an automobile service business, in this case automobile body work.
Dupont Duco was developed by Dupont and General Motors in 1923 as a durable, quick drying and relatively inexpensive exterior lacquer for automobiles and other machinery.
Here are some websites with more information about Dupont Duco:
