Hat n' Boots

From 1954 until 2003, the Hat n’ Boots stood on the corner of East Marginal Way South and Corson Avenue South as a Texaco gas station.
Sitting along the western edge of the south Seattle neighborhood of Georgetown, the hat was the station office and the boots were the restrooms. The ladies room was the shorter boot and the men’s room in the taller boot. The station was empty and abandoned for a number of years before the City of Seattle moved the two structures to Oxbow Park in Georgetown in 2003. I searched diligently for my shot of the hat after restoration, but couldn’t lay my hands on it, although this is a shot of the boots restored and placed in the park.

I did find a shot of the gas station when it was abandoned after its hey-day. As a personal aside, I bought gas here in the 1970s, they had cheap gas at the time.
