This former Cities Service gas station and garage features "Ice Box" styling. The "Ice Box" name comes from the porcelain enameled steel panels on the exterior of the building, the same kind of finish on many refridgerators.

x This photo shows the steel panels on the outside of the building. Notice the curve at the top of the top edge of the wall.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
