Dr. Carlton Mast, circa 1940

Dr. Carlton Mast operated his chiropractic practice out of this building at 7434 N. Charleston St. for many years, into the 1970s. The St. Johns-area building still exists, with some structural changes, but it retains its distinctive glass block front windows. VP fan Justin Wassinger purchased a photo album at an estate sale last year and then found it once belonged to Dr. Mast.

  1. I was wondering what was in the old building next to the former St Johns Honda? I know Albertsons use to be across the street in the former children services building.

    It looks like a old car dealership from the 40’s, on the SW corner of N Lombard and Tyler. Are there any photos of the old dealership?

  2. It’s now a Finnish Services church, right between the St. Johns Library and Weir’s Cyclery. It’s grown up a story, and has an addition in back as well.

    This was the Gardner Ford dealership. Up until a few years ago their name was still on the side of the building. When the building was repainted we lost a little bit of history.

  4. thanks Jim

    I did some research on line at the library and it was only Gardner ford for around 3 or 4 years. Before that HARBOR Motors built the building and ran it from 1948 to 58 until Gardner ford bought it. I looks like Gardner ford had a auction and sold everything, when they closed.
