Montlake Mobil Gas station, 1951

This Mobil gas station replaced the Montlake Drive-In Market, which was torn down in 1949. This gas station was in turn torn down in 1969. The lot had a professional building from 1981 until 2007. A large mixed-use building is currently under construction.


I wrote an article about the first building on Capitol Hill Seattle blog,


This photo appears in my roundup of assessor's photos of Seattle's drive-in markets,


From property file 871210-0035, address 2200 24th Ave East, Washington State Archives Puget Sound Regional Branch.
