Art Deco Gulf Station, Lincoln Highway, Bedford, PA

This is Roadside Americana at its finest. The open road is where you will find us at any given moment of our spare time. As with many things in our 21st century big-box economy, some things just blend together. Typically a gas station stop looks the same, regardless of where you are.

On that note, seeing this Art Deco gem of a service station, Dunkle's Gulf on the Lincoln Highway in Bedford, PA, was a real treat. This station dates back to 1933 and is a world famous landmark. One of the few gas stations that remains from that era and one of a few, if not the only, gas station that remains in the art-deco style. Simply stunning.
