Actually, that gas station is Moderne, which is a later design movement than Deco. Moderne is more a 30s thing; Deco is from the 1920s. Deco has more design flourishes on it, as in the T&P depot and freight house in Fort Worth. Moderne is "streamlined" in comparison, rounded corners, lots of use of white and with aluminum or steel trim. A good find up there, Whiskey!

I stumbled on your blog because we share similar tastes in music. Thanks for documenting your road trips - it allows me to live vicariously through you. You've also inspired me to do more blogging about my own road trips and to slow down and pay attention to the little things.

We just returned from a Minnesota road trip, and around Brainerd there are some very cool older building at the Burlington Northern facility. I wish I would have photographed them.

Keep up the good work.
