This CALPET station tops them all with genie attendants. (1922)

I would love to see a color photograph of this station. I'm sure the tile roof and the tile along the base was beautiful.

Why do you think they chose this particular motif?
My only guess is that CALPET is close to CARPET...as in flying carpet.
