I finished my post about the Solvang Garage a couple of weeks ago. Since then I have been given some more photos. I thought that you might like to see them since we probably won't be visiting the Solvang Garage again until after 1956 and these are early pictures.

Looks like a slow day at the Solvang Garage as the mechanics are holding up the building. Looks like the photographer was leaning though.


This must have been a family get together and celebration. Notice the Red Crown sign just behind the pump that someone is holding up. In later photos this sign is mounted under the window to the right of the garage door.


I haven't had a chance to ask Gladys Fitzgerald about the significance of this corn stalk, but it's a tall one.


If you're waiting for more stories about the Service Stations of the Santa Ynez Valley, they're coming.

Just spent the day looking through a treasure trove of old highway photos for my story on Highway 101 through Buellton, so there should be plenty of pictures and some history too!
