719. Ethiopia, Asmara


Dear Ed,

The fantastic Fiat Tagliero building in Asmara is a 74 years
old gas station in the Italian Futuristic style. The station has
a central tower that houses the cashier desks, a small shop,
an office, and two massive 50 feet long cantilevered canopies
at each side designed to resemble the wings of an airplane.
Undoubtedly this is one of the best modern buildings in all
Africa.

Regards,
R
