Richfield Service Station II

Here is another set of shots of the Richfield station in Visalia (Thanks Chris for the location!) one year later; August of 2006. Apart from the man sitting outside, one change is the building sports a new paint job. What on earth could be going on with the former gasoline station? The garage door is painted red to match the office door.

Three days later, this slightly blurry picture reveals that the station is being used as a stand to sell stuff. As I drove by, it seemed like they were selling some sort of hubcap art, but I am not totally sure. It's nice to see an old building like this serving a useful purpose instead of sitting abandoned until it's too late to save it.
