El Gran Garage422 E. Second St., Winslow, AZ
Service stations and garages were often built with large canopies or roofed areas over the drive to keep the customers and their cars out of the hot sun and the one at the El Gran is quite large. The garage is located just across the street from the La Posada Hotel and Amtrak Station.
The El Gran offered a lot more than a place for the La Posada to park their cars. In the 1932/33 phonebook the El Gran was also listed as a garage offering "Complete 24 Hour One Stop Service" with steam heat. The 1938/39 book lists the garage as offering Chrysler Plymouth sales and service. The July 1940 book lists the them as an authorized Buick dealer using the tag line "When Better Automobiles Are Built, Buick Will Build Them". In some years the listing also included storage as a service that was offered.
