Service Station

-A A +A
c. 1935. Southeast corner Maple and Drake streets

This former service station building is a version of the Spanish Colonial Revival, presented in white glazed brick and boasting a bright blue tile roof that seems to form mansard-like awnings over various openings. The gable above the office curves upward like an element in the Mission Revival style. Originally a lighted sign was placed within the center round window of the gable.
