Thanks to Baer Wright for sharing these fantastic photos of his family’s commercial lot at 656 Willow Street. My favorite part is that the two pics show the evolution of the lot, which unfortunately meant the destruction of the classic gas station that was there. Just last week I was in Truckee when I spotted a gorgeous retro gas station which has been preserved and is now home to a real estate company. Wish we had just ONE of these shops in Willow Glen!
