Says since 1946.

Impressive.

Not as impressive as a guy with 70k posts here, but impressive.

The 1959 picture was for an ad showing off their brand new 1960 wrecker.

Barely noticed the place, but I'll try and take a pic next time I pass. I'm on the opposite side of town, but used to be over that way regularly when my kids were in school.

If the wrecker ain't broke, don't replace it, I reckon.

A few years a fellow I know bought a new tow truck. He said he had to make 300 runs a year just to pay for insurance.

oh I see, it's kind of shadowed by the Y, yeah if I go that way, I do see it because traffic crawls along there, but it's not very remarkable as a building. Its longevity of use is, though

We had a '60 GMC wrecker pulling a car out of a pond a while back.
Is the building with the turrets the Y? What is the tower in both pics?

The tower is just a chimbley I think. It used to be an industrial area, but now all the factories and warehouses are razed or turned into fancy loft apartment complexes.

The Y is the monstrous brick block in the recent street view

Yes, the tower is a Santa Claus trap.
