Old Gas Station

Hughes Brothers, Inc. is North Carolina’s oldest tire dealer, in business since 1921. The original shop was at the corner of  2nd and Market Streets, in Wilmington, NC. This interesting red and white building at 1101 Market Street has been their primary location since the 1940’s.

This photo was chosen for Ruby Tuesday.

  1. Great bit of art deco architecture, right down to the lettering.

  2. Ginger: Great to see another daily photo site for NC. We’re here in Greensboro. We should make a list of all the NC Daily Photo Sites! Love the old building!
