The Tramway Gas Station

One from the archives from an early visit to Palm Springs, the iconic Tramway Gas Station has become the emblem of Mid Century to Modern. Designed by Albert Frey, the godfather of minimalism, it was the first air conditioned public building in the USA and was always intended to have the flexibility to change with required usage. It now houses the Palm Springs Visitors centre. http://mid-century-modern.net/tramway-gas-station/
