I lived at 816 E 5th street until late '56, the last house before it crossed 169 (a gas station was between us and 169). I recall that at 7th and 169 there was no station on the SE corner but at the other 3 corners.The one on the SW corner had a drive in and I was a "cook" and car-hop there the summer of '53.
