Cities Service Oil Company Station, 1933

1502 East 11th Street

This two-bay service station was designed by M. R. Pettingill. Its design includes an office which is recessed from the larger service area. The brick building remains painted white but the office now features a full-glazed aluminum-framed storefront which was added later. The station is still utilized in the automotive service business, but no longer contains the pump island. (Excepted from Tulsa Preservation Commission)

This building is on the list of historic art deco buildings so I will include it in this collection. However, I have to think that with the roll up doors and store front windows, the original style has been somewhat diminished.
