I actually have fond memories of Holiday gas stations. As a boy, I used to ride my bicycle to the one near Minnehaha Creek in South Minneapolis. When we later moved to Bloomington, Minnesota, where Holiday is based, Dad would often get gas at a nearby location.

This beautiful, Swiss-roof-with-stone store is only a few blocks from our house and one block from Minnesota Drive — imagine that — in Alaska!

I also very much like their royal blue color — but their brightly lit, billboard ad peddling junk not so much — which I made sure to avoid in this image.

So during this Thanksgiving Day holiday, I photographed our nearby Holiday : )
