A. C. Smith & Co. Gas Station

The A. C. Smith & Co. Gas Station is a historic gas station at 117 Beale Street in Quincy, Massachusetts. It is a single-story brick, with a front facade divided into three vehicle bays on the left and an office on the right, with a pedestrian entrance to the work area in between. A low-pitch gable at the center acts a kind of parapet, and there are round decorative panels on the front facade. The building was constructed in 1926, and is a little-altered example of an early functional automotive filling and service station. Its original brickwork remains in good condition, and its service bays are distinctively illuminated in part by original skylights.[2]
