Questions for Photos 1 and 2

1. In what ways are these two gas stations alike? How are they different? How are they different from a typical gas station today?

2. Do you think stations such as these would be built today? Why or why not? Would you like to work in such a building?

* The photos on this screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high quality version of Photo 1 and Photo 2 but be aware that each file will take as much as 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
