Radiators, tyres

Times have changed. Remember when car radiators looked like this?

Naturally, this oddly named firm is no longer around.

PE having always been SA's "Motown", tyres were also an important part of things. Can't find this company in the phone book.

Who, or what, was M C Jacobsz, I wonder. Well there is still someone by that name listed in the phone book in Newton Park.

There is an Algoa Agents and Distributors in Paterson Road, North End. I wonder if it has any links to this firm?

There are three Keysers in the book, but none by these initials. I see the spread of business to Newton Park had already begun back then.
