Historic Architecture Downtown Richmond:
A Walking Tour
 

Lingle Real Estate, Inc.
     Pure Oil Service Station - 1930's
801 North "A" Street

English Cottage Design (mid 1930s)

The Pure Oil Company realized they might garner a better share of the gasoline market if their stations had a distinctive theme. In the mid–1920s they recruited New Orleans architect C.A. Peterson who came up with the "English Cottage" design for their stations. From the vantage point of the motorist wheeling past, the pleasant trappings of the roadside house conjured up welcome feelings of friendliness.
