Inscription.  In the late 1920s the City of St. Louis extended Gravois Ave to connect to 12th St, creating a path for the world-famous Route 66. Part of the City Beautiful Movement to create garden and green space for the city, the triangle became a Sinclair service station built in Mediterranean revival style with Art Deco accents. Eventually, the decrepit station was restored by the Soulard Restoration Group, which owns and maintains this historic site.
 
Erected 2019 by Soulard Historic District.
