Lindholm Service Station in Cloquet, MN

Here is a link to photos taken August 2010 of the RW Lindholm Service Station in Cloquet, Minnesota. Built in 1956, its design is derived from the Broadacre Standardized Overhead Service Station which was designed as part of the Broadacre City project in the 1930s.

Well never mind ... I was going to post a series of pics we took last summer of the Lindholm station - where we filled with gas by the way - but can't seem to download them from Facebook. Any tips? The station is unique and a fantastic space. Well maintained and highly respected. We also had the rar...

@ Rodrick ... I'm curious ... in which "small Minnesota farming community" did you grow up? I hail from Crookston (NW Minnesota: Polk Co, where Aubrey Bank's Krum house is located on the SW side of town), but raised on a farm between Crookston and Red Lake Falls (Red Lake County, where Herb Fritz's ...
