Dunkle's was designed by Pittsburgh-based Edward Weber, who became known for his Art Deco designs ( AL103). This small, cream-colored gas station, faced with terra-cotta tile, was built to service the traffic on U.S. 30. It has two colorful bands of decorative tile and vibrant signage. It is a fine example of Art Deco, and has the varied roofline, geometric patterns, and colors characteristic of the style.
