"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Feller’s Garage Castle Shannon PA

Not sure of the fate of this structure.  I did find a nice photo that someone took a year ago. This is just mine as I waited at the red light, taken with the iPhone.

    Memories of a bygone day when the mechanic knew your name and you had great personal service…and the car was fixed the first time at a reasonable price. I bet Mr. Feller was a good mechanic.

  2. My garagiste still knows my name; takes in my parcels for me and helped me get my sofa out of the sitting room!

  5. Boy, this photo sure does evoke some strong memories — even smells. There was a scent to the old garages that you won’t find anywhere else. Good thing, too!

  6. Great photo! Next to our board of education office is Thacker’s Garage – looks very similar – not quite as run down! He takes care of our districts buses – all six of them! We’re a very small district! But this is a piece of America that is slowly but surely going by the wayside.

  9. Many of us feel nostalgia about the America we remember from our childhood. This photo captures a glimpse back in time.

  11. We have buildings like this around the city. I frequently wonder about them: what were they like ‘back in the day’? Who worked/played/lived there? Change, change, change.

    • All of life is change. You are right about that!!

    As of today, Feller’s garage is still there, I’m a local of Bethel Park, right down the street of Feller’s and pass it all the time. Thought the construction cones around the building are worrisome.
