Old Service Station

Occasionally I can still stumble across a building in this city that I have never seen before. Such is the case with this old gas station at the corner of Shepherd and Elsmere.

Likely built in the late 1920’s, this is the only one of its type left in the city that I know of. I’m not sure what purpose this little building holds today, there is a larger garage on the east half of the property.

A shot of the 1937 Fire Insurance Map shows the station in service, with the pumps along Elsmere. Seems to me to be a bit of an odd location for a service station…
