A blast from the past in downtown Issaquah

Sketched May 8, 2013

I drove by this historic gas station in Issaquah on my way to sketch paragliders at Tiger Mountain. You don’t see this kind of old buildings everyday around here, so I couldn’t resist pulling over for a quick 20-minute sketch. According to the Downtown Issaquah Association website, the building may have been a residence first, built in the 1890s. Over the years, it was also used as a warehouse and feed store. In 2003, it was restored to the way it looked in the 1940s. Can you picture the scene back then? I imagine men in suits driving big old Cadillacs (like this one) and smoking cigars.
