I found some great old photos of the Mountlake Terrace from the 1950’s that I’ll be posting with the hope that you, the readers, may be able to pinpoint where they were taken. It would be interesting to do a then/now comparison.
Most of the photos will be form the Tacoma Public Library’s image archives.
Today’s photo is of Scott’s Service, a Texaco gas station . The photo was taken in August of 1951, nearly three years before the city was incorporated in 1954.
I originally thought the gas station in the photo is located where the current Shell station is (232nd and 56th) but the trees seem too far away. It could also be 228/44th or 66th/220th. What do you think?
