Marathon Motors

Here are two photos of the Marathon Motors Building. They built early autos (the Marathon Motor Car) and operated around 1904 before going out business fairly quickly due to bad management and heavy competition. The building was first built as a cotton mill in the late 1800's.
there is a short history of this company at
