Famous over the road Glass House Restaurant on the Will Rogers Turnpike at Vinita, Oklahoma.

–This building is located at the Vinita service plaza, and still houses a restaurant, though it is a McDonalds franchise. The Conoco station is still operated, but now by Phillips 66.

This image likely dates from the 1950s, just after the building was opened in 1957.
