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.
