Historic Hood River
Commuters General Gasoline
There’s so much to enjoy in this image that we can overlook the fact it’s not in Hood River. This stylish gas station was on Broadway in Burlingame, California (not Portland, as I first posted). The design of the station and the sign graphics are impressive.
The building in the background says “Circulating Library” on the awning. There is also a “Broadway Tamale Parlor,” a Real Estate agent with the address of 1100 Broadway, and a Broadway Cab Company with the phone number Burl. 5464.
This image is from the DeWitt album. Pansy DeWitt’s notes indicate this was Allyn, Mal and Ralph’s station about 1930.
Reader notes offer more context about the owners of the station and its location.
