Roscoe Peoples Sinclair Station, 1935, Oak Park

Roscoe Peoples built this Sinclair Gas station in 1935, in the Mediterranean Revival style often associated with the roadside architecture of the time. In recent years it was home to John Lindsey’s service station and the Snake Hunters Club. John Lindsey was a well-known snake collector who milked venomous species for the manufacture of antivenom. The structure has been restored and now serves as the Oak Park City Hall.

Roadside Filling Station, Stilson

This long abandoned filling station on the edge of Stilson last served as an antique store, I believe. The style may indicate that it was a Gulf station, per comments from Joe Kitchens, whose grandfather owned a similar station in Gough.
