former Gulf station
Washington, DC
This former Gulf station is also known as the Embassy Gulf station. It was designed in 1936 and is clad in Alabama limestone, to match the Church of the Pilgrims across the street. The station was saved from demolition in 1973. The building was restored and added to the National Register of Historic Places. During the restoration, the tower was removed. The entrances and windows were also significantly altered. The building housed a Mobil station when these photos were taken in 2003. By 2014, it was a Sunoco station. By 2017, the building was vacant and the pumps had been removed. By 2021, the building was back in use as a Shell station. [map]
