Old Service Station

We might as well make this stuff that’s gone week šŸ™‚

Although it’s hard to see in the photo, this old service station at Seminole & Drouillard until recently still retained its original enamaled steel panels. These were very popular in the 1930’s and 1940’s, as they were relatively easy to maintain and cheap. In the Metro Detroit area you’ll see many old hamburger joints (a la White Castle) in this style.

These were once a dime a dozen, but there are very few around Windsor today. Sadly, this one was “refurbished” last fall, is looks nothing like this anymore.
