Standard Station

-A A +A
1927. 101–103 Bear Creek Ave.

Twin curvilinear parapets over twin service bays are separated by a central bell tower in this distant echo of Padre Junipero Serra's San Diego mission. Clad in stucco under blue roof tiles, this gas station has been reincarnated as an art gallery, a bakery, and an automobilia shop.
