The Texaco station at the northeast corner of W. Geer and Foster Sts. appears to have originally been built in the 1940s. By the 1960s, it had become a Sinclair Station.

It was one of three service stations located at this intersection. I'm not sure when it went out of business as a gas station, but it has seemed fairly abandoned over the last ~10 years.

Recently however, it has undergone significant renovation and is really wonderfully transformed. My understanding is that will become some sort of fitness studio (I may not be right about that.) But this kind of renovation shows the possibilities inherent in well-constructed and interesting small buildings.
