|A Google Street View capture of the corner of 19th Street and 10th Avenue, one block south of the original 1977 location, shows that the two buildings in the background of the original photo are still there.|
|This building now occupies part of the original lot of the service station, the part in the background where the Ford truck was sitting.|
