Ogden

-A A +A

On Ogden's main street, Walnut, are two Streamline Moderne service stations of the late 1930s. Claussen's Texaco (c. 1936) at Fifth and Walnut streets has a raised center section, balanced on each side by low service wings. Curved corners and horizontal banding appear on the street facade of this stucco building. Down the street, at Sixth and Walnut, is a Standard Service Station (c. 1957) composed of a single horizontal box with rounded corners and the usual banding.
