The Garage in Saint Walburg

I love the design of these old garages. The curved corner just makes it!  

In their heyday many of them had the slider style pop machine . . . open the lid and there before you was a selection of sodas partially submerged in chilled water.  Drop in a coin and slide out your favourite drink. Crush brand clear cream soda was always my first choice.

This garage stands on a corner along the main drag in Saint Walburg, Saskatchewan.

  1. We had a building like that in my hometown too. It was the local car dealership. Long gone now, of course. Plus I remember those cold-water based pop machines too!

  2. I remember those pop machines too - my favourite was Orange Crush.
