Whiting Brothers Gas Station in Albuquerque, NM

Whiting Brothers in Albuquerque
The view is still great from up on Albuquerque’s stretch of Route 66 running up Nine-Mile Hill on the west side of the Duke City. Said view no longer includes this once majestic station, as seen here in those distant times of 1983 (although the over-painted sign and adjacent former Whiting Bros motel remain). I left the edges of the Kodachrome slide mount when I scanned this image, so as not to crop off any of the detail of the great sign. Sadly, they have taken my Kodachrome, along with Whiting Bros, away.
