A lot has changed in the last few years along West Main Street with much more change in store in the near future. Some construction has made new uses of old buildings. This former gas station, turned auto repair, is now a restaurant with patio seating where gas pumps once stood.
I first posted on this building more than two years ago in this post on Charlottesville Then and Now.
The oldest photograph I’ve been able to find of this West Main Street location is this one by Rufus Holsinger (Courtesy Special Collections, UVA Library) taken a century ago, well before the gas station was built. The building seen here still stands with a number of changes.
