North Broadway in Wichita, Kansas was home to the gas station, grocery, and motor court lodge called the Red Apple. Over time, the Red Apple had some minor exterior changes and a Conoco station just to the south (or left). I chose to paint the store with the small gas hut and the "office" for the motor court. The Red Apple was at 3421 North Broadway and built c. 1927.
