Pete's Texaco & Truck Stop - Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Pete's Texaco Super Service & Truck Stop - 2405 East 10th Street Sioux Falls, South Dakota. There are several vintage neon signs shown on this postcard: Pete's Truck Stop; Chris' Country Grill Cafe; and Texaco. There are several pump islands to be seen.

One rapidly disappearing item shown is that…

Many of the adjacent storefronts are empty, reinforcing the eerie loneliness that is dominant in Hopper's paintings.
