Dorchester Illustration 2530 450 Talbot Avenue

The building at the northeast corner of Talbot Avenue and Welles Avenue is now used by the Codman Square Post Office as an annex.

The building was originally built as a garage in 1921. The Duby Hudson Company seems to have been the last automobile-related company to occupy the building. Duby Hudson, which was owned by Jack Duby, had a used-car facility on Gallivan Boulevard, and they used the Talbot Avenue building as a new car showroom. In 1952, which may have been the last year of their occupancy, the company featured the new Hornet. Other models in the line were Pacemaker, Super, Wasp and Commodore.

Following the Duby Hudson tenancy, the building was put to various uses including the manufacturing of leather trimmings for shoes, assembling storm windows and manufacturing greeting cards.

The date the Post Office began using the building has not been documented.
