former Seaside station [gone]
Los Angeles, CA
This former Seaside station was built in the 1950s. These stations were prefabricated. It had been vacant for years when these photos were taken in 2008. That same year, the station was disassembled with plans to reassemble it at the San Diego Automotive Museum. However, no one at the museum knows anything about the building.

2013:
This former station was built in 1927. From 1952-1990, it was known as Don Clark's Mobil Station. In 1999, the building was converted into the Blue Orchid, a flower shop. In 2009, the business closed and the building has been vacant since then. The addition to the back of the building was removed. There has been talk of developing this site. If that happens, this landmarked building will be relocated. [map]
