  1. Very nice photo! I always liked that building when I’d pass by it!

      Thanks, Kolman! Do you know any history of this building? I drive by it almost every day and I always wonder what it originally was and how old it is.

      • Hi Sally, No, I lived in Eastlake from 1975-1986 and drove by it all the time too. It always looked like that in the years that I’ve passed it. Interesting building isn’t it, quite beautiful!

    Beautiful image, Sally. I’m sorry to hear you are having a problem with your eyes – I do so hope it clears up soon. Wishing you much healing!

    Couple of years ago someone emailed me a collection of classic service stations. I also have a couple of photo books of such that still, or once, exist along Route 66. Little reminds me of my youth more than these buildings. Probably because we hung out at one of them so much. It’s where the kids in the neighborhood went to fix a flat on their bicycle, to borrow a crescent wrench, to get some free used motor oil to oil the chain with, learn how to wash cars, change oil, and the basics of mechanics. The one in our neighborhood was the Pure Oil station owned by Johnny Buck and Homer Wheaton. They were great with putting up with us brats!

    Sorry to hear about your eye.

    Thanks Deb! It’s getting better daily.

Don't be shy, speak up!
