Two Delightful Surprises in Bedford, Pennsylvania

In 2005, a dear friend and I drove The Lincoln Highway from New Jersey (not too far from Fort Lee), and hopped off somewhere in Illinois . Along the way, one of my favorite sites was Dick Dunkle’s Art Deco Gulflex Gas Station in Bedford, PA. It was a treat to see such a piece of early 1930s commercial architecture in such beautiful condition.

Dick Dunkles Gulflex Gas Station in Bedford is in wonderful condition!

And just down the road on Route 30, I found this darling little Alhambra!

    Hmmm, did you know there is a custom Sears Osborn in Bedford too? I found it a few years ago using a testimonial and photo.

    I forgot about it until this morning and I re-discovered it in my computer files. >:(
