Actually, it was Earle C. Anthony (Earle with an "E") and he had numerous dealerships, not two. For starters, he had LA, San Francisco, Oakland, Beverly Hills and others. He was also West Coast Distributor for Packard Motor Car Company and a member of the board of directors.

Pic #2 is an interior snap shot, taken 1929 and showing the Packard display of Earle C. Anthony in Los Angeles.
1928, Los Angeles, Packard Automobile sales room and office interiors, Earle C. Anthony by Bernard Maybeck; John Parkinson and Donald B. Parkinson, Architects.
Richly decorative, the Los Angeles showroom still effectively housed automobiles of the 1970s.
In the Los Angeles Packard building, designed by John and Donald B. Parkinson, Maybeck's work was limited to the interior finishes and the styling of the executive office suite."
