Dome Gas in Takoma

This photo is of the old Dome gas service station in Takoma (or possibly Takoma Park). The caption says Takoma Park, but according to this page, the location was at Cedar and Blair, just inside the District line. This would also make sense because the railroad tracks in the background are still there today.
