Tulsa Packard Dealership?

I had completely forgotten about this article in a 2009 Hemmings Motor News which talks about a Packard dealership which was in Tulsa.  Unfortunately, there was no address given.  Does this building look famiiar to anyone in Tulsa?    It might have been at 1200 S. Boston Ave., as one was referred to on that location several  years later.  However, there is nothing at that address now so the building may be gone.  Google Maps shows it as a parking lot.  Sad.
building sits on corner, Packard cars parked on streets, “Packard” written above each window. Inscribed on photo back: Packard Motor Car Co., branches/dealerships/agencies, newly redecorated and enlarged facility Tulsa, Oklahoma, cars in showroom; (corner) 1937 Packard six, fifteenth series, 6-cylinder, 100-horsepower, 115-inch wheelbase, coupe, on street (left) 1937 Packard one twenty, fifteenth series, model 120-C, 8-cylinder, 120-horsepower, 120-inch wheelbase, 2/4-person convertible coupe (body type #1099), on side street (right) 1937 Packard one-twenty, fifteenth series, model 120-C, 8-cylinder, 120-horsepower, 120-inch wheelbase, 5-person touring sedan (body type #1092) plus two club sedans.
