The old service station on Washington Ave south of downtown that Eric R Schantz painted several years ago is still looking great. I took a lot of photos of it after he painted it, but I have not really stopped a looked at it in a while. It’s surprises me that it has not been ” tagged” with graffiti and it still looks really good. I am not sure who owns the station, or what the plans are for it, but I hope it will stay around for a while since it is Saginaw’s oldest service station still standing.
I am just barely old enough to remember when you pulled into a gas station, and heard the ” DING DING” and a guy came out and pumped your gas and checked your oil. I also remember when you could get your car fixed at the gas station. Now most of the gas stations are convenience stores, I’m not sure that bad or good, it just is what it is.
