In 1910, he (Alvan T. Fuller) moved his Packard and Cadillac dealerships from Park Square to a new, $300,000 automotive palace at the intersection of Commonwealth and Brighton avenues, opening it - appropriately - on Washington’s Birthday.

The location was dubbed “Fuller’s Folly’’ because it was built near swamp land and considered so far from downtown Boston that no one would shop there. Instead, Fuller sold so many cars that other dealers scrambled to open near him, earning Commonwealth Avenue the moniker “Automobile Row.’’

...by the 1920s his business “was recognized as the world’s most successful auto dealership.
