I sketched this service station in the early days of the series, located on the Princes Hwy, St Peters. The first time it was a scorching hot day and I had to sit in a doorway where there was a sliver of shade. On the weekend I returned with a mate and it was very cool, a winters day with a wind from Tasmania blowing up the highway. I wanted to return as this lovely building as it is slated for demolition. They have taken the lettering off it for some reason. The light was strong and it made for great shadows.
This is a purpose built petro station, Spanish Mission style, 1930's. The past 50 years it has had the same owner. Terrible shame it is being pulled down.
