Art Deco petrol station.

Art Deco petrol station.
Built in 1927 to the design of architect Casto Fernández Shaw. Dismantled in 1977 and pleasingly rebuilt to the exact original design 20 years later. The hotel behind is an '80s construction. I think the two architectural styles fit together pretty well.
Better on black and full screen.

I like the style, Andy .. thanks for sharing..
When I think of art deco, my mind goes to Miami, Florida ... some fascinating buildings. Went there with a group of gal-pals years ago and we just toured Miami going into hotel after hotel, etc just admiring the imagination !
We always left before management asked us any questions.

Yes, I agree, Peggy. Some aspects of art deco were pleasing indeed! Very many thanks.
... ... I can't keep up with your editing!!!!!! :o)
But I have to laugh as I do it all the time. 2 minutes after and I think; 'Oh! I wish i'd said that instead ... so I go back and edit. ... and then 2 minutes later I re-edit and then edit some more!!!
etc.......

Oh I do love Art Deco, and this is the first petrol filling station I've seen built at that time.

I see many gas stations here with a similar design of canopy over the pumps. It prevents the rain from falling on the customers. And, of course, I always buy Shell gasoline.

Good for you!
I don't take public transport at the moment and motion myself in the traditional bipedal manner. I have no choice in the matter!

Superbe et bien harmonieuse avec l’hôtel,une architecture remarquable par sa beauté et sa conception..Cependant la construction édifiée est fabuleuse et fascinante a la fois.
Bonne fin de nuit et agreable semaine a venir.

I really like art deco and it's great that this petrol station was rebuilt. As you commented, the two buildings go well together.
