TOTTENS SERVICE STATION
Above you see a before and after photo of "Bus" Tottens service station that I hand colored. This station sat at 5 Corners on the West Side and in fact the building is still there, painted a God-awful purple and being used as an auto clean-up business. That's Bus Totten on the left and he was a distant relative of mine, (Tottens being the mothers side of my family.) This photo was taken in 1938 and is one of my favorite photos. Below is the Ad that appeared in Sept of 1923 when the station previous station opened on this spot..
This station needs to be saved!Did you know that stations like this have been listed on the National Historic Landmark Record?
We have one of the finest examples anywhere in the country, and need to take advantage before it's too late!
