Mammoth Arizona Gas Station: yes it's real

I was looking up a couple of Arizona cities on Google maps and wiki the other day and came across this fabulous photo on the Mammoth, AZ wiki page.

"Hey! I've been there!"

A few years ago, I drove through the tiny town of Mammoth on the way to Durgano, Co. and took a similar photo, which I turned into a cyanotype:
"Filling Station, Mammoth, AZ", 7-1/2 x 11",  cyanotype on Fabriano watercolor paper
Strangely enough, I made several prints and even sold a couple, but most people thought I had faked it in Photoshop. As you can see from the photo above, it's a real gas station-tuned church. Pretty awesome!
