Dartings Sinclair (now a Mobil Service Station)

-A A +A
now a Mobil Service Station
c. 1925. Northeast corner of 5th and Maurer streets

This small service station suggests that it is a miniature, many-gabled dwelling. Each of its two small entrances reaches up into a steeply pitched gable, which is repeated a few feet back onto the roof. The walls of these second gables are shingled, as is the roof beyond.
