    Ragsdale & Hansen's Aeroplane Gasoline station no. 1. I'd love to see into the box on the left side of the booth. Oil dispenser? I don't think I've ever seen clock-face pumps with roof supports running through them.

  4. Billups was purchased by Signal Oil after they sold off their chain of Signal Gas Stations. For several years Signal Gas and Oil was not operating Signal Gas Stations until names were finally changed on stations by purchaser.
    Signal bought and operated Regal, Hancock, Billups and SOC. But due to earlier sale could not rename as Signal.

    "Auto Laundry" sounds much fancier than "Car Wash" :)

  8. Some pictures I ran across of an old station in Detroit that's, well, out of service.

    Forks, Wa. The older image is from the 30's and the second is of the same location in 1956.
