The Normandy

-A A +A
c. 1931. Southwest corner of 38th St. and Hamilton Blvd.

A service station and a restaurant building were designed in the full-blown French Norman style. The service station has two small round towers with conical roofs which are placed one behind the other. The restaurant has a much larger, round three-story tower and a steeply pitched hipped roof. The two buildings have now been joined together.
