It was a little station. Too bad it's now a parking lot.

Sad.

Always sad to lose a city tree but parking places are probably badly needed.
Nice that you have a historical record of what was.

They could have kept the tree and built the parking lot around it. Well... maybe.

Bummer about the tree.

Well, it wasn't much of a gas station nor much of a tree, so it doesn't bother me as much as some losses.

This spot looks so cool in the middle shot.

We've had a lot of gas stations removed for environmental reasons. I imagine the drivers who used the station were a bit miffed foe a while but by now they have found alternatives. I think it's great that you have before and after photos.
