Found out recently that this old station and the Cardinal Diner were slated to be demolished soon, possibly to make way for a McDonalds. They stand across from the old Ashland plant. I used to stop at the diner for breakfast. Station was most recently a used car lot, I don't know what brand gas it once was.

I remember bumping into 5qt out front 15 years ago when he had the Suburban with the plywood Wanted sign on the back.

Not all Chimneys were attached to a fire place. Most were flues for a small stove either for cooking/heating or both.

Such a shame. All that stainless trim should be saved...as well as the front door. Imagine how many hands have touched it. Would be soooo kool incorporated into someone's garage. Wish I was closer.

Wow....very sad to see either building demolished. Both are super examples of their type, but being an art deco collector, it kills me to see all the diner go with all the great deco fašade work. Someone should see if a movie set company were anywhere nearby to try and save all that. Seems like there could be some in New York? Sad, sad......the preservationist in me is dying to see this!

Darin I thought the very same about the fašade, looks great and still in relatively good shape judging from the submitted pictures. However the land is likely very valuable and the building not..so the inevitable happens.

I wonder what the old gas station is being used for. Both the electric and the gas meter are still intact. Hmmmmmm
