::  Gulf Oil Station
1700 SW 22nd Street
Year Built: 1938
Architects: Lester Avery and Curtis E. Haley, from a prototype by Russell Pancoast
Date Designated: 1983

a. Built in the era before oil companies standardized service station architecture, the Gulf Oil Station is an unusual combination of Art Deco style elements with Mediterranean
Revival style details. The unique spring-like columns supporting the canopies over the gas pumps are the building's most distinctive feature. Although the Gulf Oil Company built several stations in the Miami area based on architect Russell Pancoast's prototype, this is the only surviving example of the design.

b. Historic photograph of the Gulf Oil Station on Biscayne Boulevard (now demolished), which was also based on the prototype designed by Russell Pancoast, circa 1935.
