Long Description:
Continued from the Smithsonian Database:
"The figure on the north side stands on top of a tire and the figure on the south side stands on top of a automobile steering wheel. The figures are depicted with little surface detail."

The building is for sale and does not really look occupied. Trees along the street block the photographers view. The area is a bit forlorn, and you wonder whether these will survive.
