Location #G

This is Brown's Cycle shop. It is acutally located on the frontage road of southbound 101 about 100 yards west of the Joe C. Brown ranch that was documented in location #C. It was originally a Signal Oil Company service station, and Joe built it here on his property in 1950 when he realized that the new freeway would be built in that location. For years, his station was the only one on the new freeway between San Ardo and Paso Robles.

View looking south.

The original signage has been re-painted for the cycle business.
The old pump island.
View facing south. They're probably not worried too much about anyone stealing the bike off of that pole.
A classic old drinking fountain on the north side of the building.
