The above pergola of fuel makes filling up the tank a veritable garden party!
This convenience store features engaged Corinthian Columns on plinths. I guess they're going for the ruined grotto effect with the bricked-in arch. You, know, instant history - like Lutyens and Addison Mizner. Yeah.
This Walgreen's is practically academic in its use of the Corinthian Order- note the double pilasters at the entrance pavillion. The frieze is a bit exaggerated, but I saw much (much!) worse in town; unfortunately, the person driving me around found my outrage less than amusing -"not everyone is that picky about architecture" (her Dad's a civil engineer) - and didn't want to pull over on busy roads so I could get pictures of numerous monstrosities. I wish I could have gotten a better shot here, but the Madison police were busily arresting a Gustav evacuee. (Or maybe they caught some local stealing Sudafed to make meth - you just know there are labs up in the hills)
One final shot, taken on the way out of town. On the left is the local Kinko's. Nice cupolas.
