Description

The City Station, located at the southeast corner of Dillard Street and Plant Street in Winter Garden, Florida, in 1924. Built by James Lafayette Dillard (1858-1943), this building was a combination of a gas station and a grocery store with upstairs apartments, a feature common to buildings of that time period. A gasoline pump can been seen just to the rear of the vehicle. Dillard is pictured with his second wife, Frances "Fannie" Bedingfield Dillard. On the left side in the background is the Wilson and Toomer Fertilizer building. At the right is the Roper Brothers packing house. City Station was torn down to make way for a new building, now the site of two restaurants.
