Today’s feature photo is of the Motor House, constructed in the mid-1930s, and located at 68 Milligan Street in the center of the City of Perth, the Capital of Western Australia. The facility housed a drive-through filling station in the front of the building on the ground floor, the Lee Body Works on the second floor, some form of a car rental agency and apparently a parking garage.
The building has survived and is triangle shaped, quite large and different in proportions than the period photograph suggests. Out front on the left is an American made Whippet, and to its right is a Ford roadster. Beneath the overhang are a pair pumps with visible gasoline display cylinders, and behind them, the office windows; on the far-right may be and entrance or exit ramp used for driving vehicles into or out of the building.
