The second building is a gas or service station. It is made from some type of thin wood covered with paper on both sides. The siding has model railroading brick paper glued to the side to simulate brick siding. The two garage doors have windows cutout with a pedal driven jigsaw. The rear windows were made from some plastic window covering with cloth support simulating window panes.
Gas Station built in 1950
These building construction methods lead me to build several of my building using Masonite and brick paper which is still available from hobby shops or on eBay. I got mine from Walthers years ago.
