Here are images from the famous Hat n' Boots Gas Station near Seattle, WA. This gas station from the 50's is an example of mid-century era when building's were shaped like objects.



Not sure what the fate of this old relic will be.

Ahhh, root beer on a hot summer day from a real root beer stand shaped like a barrel. What could be better, other than an extra serving. In any case, XXX Root Beer is the place.
