Yes Brass Car Guy, the other coffee pot building in Washington State is the Teapot Dome Service Station built in 1922 on what later became U.S. Route 12 Located at 117 First Avenue, Zillah, Washington.

Most of them were destroyed during the "Tea Pot Dome scandal" :-)

My Wife & I lived near Bedford - that same Coffee pot is out by the Fairgrounds... or was up to Y2K anyhow.

The real attraction in that town was the Gulf station in the center. I'm sure someone can find a street view of it.

As of 2012, the tea pot and gas station were still there.

On the way to Chambersburg PA from Butler Pa my Father would take us via route 30 over the mountains. Along the way we would stop at the top of one of the mountains and there was an eatery in the shape of a large ship and out on an observation deck they had large viewers that you would put 10 cents in and look down over the mountain. Their claim to fame was that you could see 7 states from their observation deck. I believe it burnt down in the 90's

That was called the SS Grandview Ship Hotel. I remember many fun family trips there when it was really a place to see. My wife and I stopped there just one more time when the owner was beginning to sell off the interior items. Back then he offered to sell me the whole business for $55,000. Rt.30 was full of interesting roadside stops and its sad many of those places are gone.

Here's a photo of the Ten Millionth Ford at Grand View Point on the Lincoln Highway. We have a cabin about a mile from here and have driven our T up and down this hill lots of times. The elevation is 2646'. About 1/2 west is the highest point on the Lincoln Highway in Pennsylvania at 2906'

Interesting, I did not know the 15M had writing on the rear panel, this is a view seldom seen, AFAIK.

I bought gas at the Tea Pot Service station many times as a teenager. One time the attendant asked if I wanted the oil and water checked so as a smart-a?? teen I said yes check the water on the 1962 Corvair. He looked around for a while then came back and said everything seemed to be ok. In the early 70's after the station had been placed on the National Historic Buildings list, a drunk drive straightened out the curve it was in and made it a drive through station. All was restored and the station eventually move down the road to the location this picture was taken in the early 90's. Can anyone ID the white roadster?

James E, a Templar looks a lot like that. Just a guess.
