|Historical Notes||"The large model of an oil molecule revolving atop the tower marks the Standard Oil Company of California Pavilion. The entry is through a sculptured garden, along walks made of petroleum-base colored asphalt. Much of the pavilion itself is made from petroleum or petrochemicals, including the stout plastic skin which forms the walls. The entrance leads past a pool with a cutaway island, showing the geology of oil. Nearby is a 40-foot map and a replica of the world's first service station--opened in Seattle 1907..."
