Just a hop, skip and a jump from Bedford, Pa.’s Coffee Pot is Dick Dunkle’s Gulf station. An art deco jewel, this station was built in 1933 and is still in full operation today.

    Truly one of the great remaining Gulf stations in the world! And only a mile or some from the repositioned “Coffee Pot.” Amazing how well the modern pumps actually fit in with the deco scheme…

      Isn’t it gorgeous, Ron? I saw a link somewhere to a sister station in New Jersey. Sadly that is no longer standing.

      I love that darned cawfee pot! That was the reason I was in Bedford. Dunkle’s was icing on the cake.

    I just saw this the other day while visiting Bedford Springs Resort. I took a few photos and am glad that I did. What fun to be able to pump your gas at such a cute little station! So glad they preserved it.

      Hi Susan :) Isn’t it just great? Apparently there was a “twin” station in Neptune NJ at one time. http://www.agilitynut.com/gas/padeco.html

      One thing I’m curious about – I didn’t venture in to the restrooms while we were there and now I wish i did. Are they wonderfully preserved? Someone must know!
