Likely a former Phillips 66 Gas Station, this building went from tire shop to restaurant to convenience store
A pair of auto-centric businesses constructed as the “new” highway was carved through Providence in the 50s/60s.

A relatively low-slung and simple early 20th century former car repair garage in a residential portion off Broadway
A sweet and spare little gas and service station formerly on Eddy Street. Love the painted transom sign.
