Gulf Station

The owner came out while I was taking pictures to see what I was doing. He said lots of people stop to take pictures of it but he does not have any pictures of the place. I plan to go out there this weekend with a couple of prints to give him so hopefully I will have more information to post next week.

 

Update:

I delivered the prints and talked to the current owner, a gentleman named Telford. He said the building has been in his family since 1975 but the building itself is about 100 years old. It was originally run by Rufus Baird. In 1975 Edward "Bo" Phillips was working for Rufus and took over the business. Bo was Telford's stepfather and Bo passed away in 1996. The store has been closed since then.
