Art Deco gas station
An Art Deco gas station from the 1930s on 38th. You can see where the three bays were added on the right by the mid-building location of the three decorative horizontal lines, an Art Deco trademark.

Boulder gas station
Vintage gas station in Boulder. I would guess this is an old Phillips 66 with the original
canopy replaced with the one with the yellow arches. Phillips 66 gas stations had the
corner office with the slanted windows.

A combination of gas station, restaurant, bar, hotel & interesting roadside architecture.

World-famous Johnson’s Corner truckstop on I-25, originally built 1952 long before I-25,
when the route alongside was still Highway 87. (Click on the photo to enlarge).
While most well-known for their cinnamon rolls, my favorite feature is out back, the little
Johnson’s Corner Chapel:
Johnson’s Corner can also be seen in Bill Murray’s 1995 film Larger Than Life.

Esso Art Deco gas station
I drove by this station on E. Colfax yesterday and saw that is is currently being gutted.
They have kept some of the exterior walls.
Reader Debra Jane Seltzer pointed out that it was originally an Esso station, so I updated the title.

This old gas station on Colfax Avenue, is perhaps Denver’s best example of an Art Deco
or Streamline Modern gas station.
