Thank you for the kind comments, Dale.
I hope your recollections of working at Dick's were good ones. A lot has changed since this photo was taken, and not just the breaking the $1 mark for a gallon of gas or introduction of "unleaded". I worked the Mobil on Burnsville Parkway a few years after this shot, while we were still manning the full-service line, assisting folks on the self-service line, all while trying to get work done in the service bays. I'm glad I captured this image and of the Cedar Avenue Clark "Super 100" station when I did. http://www.panoramio.com/photo/52685287
there is a local story about a farmer who went crazy in this barn. He couldn't find a corner to relieve himself in. :)
Impressive sepia pic!!!
Greetings from Slovakia,
There is a wonderful independent film entitled "Sweet Land" that used the Montevideo Depot in part of it's filming and surrounding area in Minnesota for the rest of the filming.
Very Awesome Picture!!!

No fish. Not a "lake". Just a "settling pond", a place for rain from the new streets to "settle" pollution into before the water is sent to the real "lakes".
Yes, a nice view of the new homes surrounding the man-made ponds in this new home development. Now there are homes on both sides of this pond, so I no longer fly my radio controlled planes here and this view now belongs to a new home owner. Thank you for the comment "G.M.C. Neto". There are a lot of "beautiful pictures" in the Minnesota area of the USA.
Very Awesome Picture!!!!!

I agree with you Tom.
I had to stand behind this statue to capture the nameplate on it's base. I can't imagine WHY anyone would want to offer that vantage point intentionally.
I've actually thought about making a tour of some of the remaining "Happy Chef" statues and your's was the first on my list. I'll heed your advise though and not make a special trip for the pizza.
What a pretty church!
Sorry to see it go, although for safety it is a best route.
