Description EN

From http://www.lancasterpast.com This building was built in the mid-1930s by contractor John D. Rademacher. A leading western New York State builder, Rademacher and his sons were responsible for the construction and repair of many important building throughout the region. During the Depression, this station represented a much smaller job than those with which the Rademacher firm was generally associated. The business was operated by the Lieblers and later by the Rohls. The station retained its original use into the 1960s. It was later adapted as a gift shop and at the time of writing serves as a seasonal ice cream shop. The Liebler-Rohl Gasoline Station was built at a time when the automobile had become entrenched in the scene of American transportation. This particular station bridges the architectural gap between the picturesque gasoline stations of the late 1920s and early thirties and the era of the box stations of industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague, which often incorporated Streamline Moderne massing and detailing. It is characteristic of the type of high-style stations that replaced ramshackle gas shacks in the wake of nationwide competitions sponsored in 1927 by Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Jr., the Art Center of New York, the American Civic Association, and the Adolph Goebel Company.
