    Some or many of these pictures may have been posted before, so bear with me if there are duplicates.
    I sure enjoyed looking at them, and wanted to share......

    There are several gas station books published over the years that have a surprising number of gas station pictures. Amazing that some people would drive around and snap 100s of gas stations! One book has a picture of an ESSO station I worked at during the mid '60s in Shively (Louisville) KY.

  8. My grandfather owned a Standard station and tourist cabins in the 30's through early 50's in Scappoose Oregon along what was the the highway from Portland to the coast. If anybody finds a picture of same, PLEASE let me know as it would be priceless to me. It was Hein's Standard Station and cabins.
    THANKS

    I am (70) years old, and really enjoy looking at these old pictures, but this one really stands out for my youth ... and just shouts "COOL" :) Always love that style shoebox as well as the dress and hair shown here..I could name every one of them with a classmate.....

    I have seen this picture before, and while very cool, it includes some interesting oddities, IMO. The buildings and dress do look '50s, but the gas pumps are I think mid '30s Wayne. Normally these would have been upgraded much sooner after the war. But the one thing that stands out for me is the '49/'50 Ford. The low-in-front stance, substantial amount of drop, large and wide-looking rear tires, caps instead of wheel covers, no skirts, and the oversize tail pipes just looks very contemporary to me. Add what possibly looks like part of a modern vehicle just inside the lower left of the picture. :confused: Would like to know the dates on the license plates and.....if the picture is real. :)
     
  13. I'm only guessing but maybe 1963 - 1964?

    I dunno, the burger joint and ice cream billboard in the background seem to lend some authenticity to picture. And the modern vehicle you see looks to me like a trash bin or something, but I could be wrong.

    You're probably right, but that shoebox just looks out of place.

    I remember R&F Service in Kannapolis NC from the 50s thru the early 90s. It was operated by Thermond Richardson and Charlie Fink, 2 of my uncles. They allowed me to hang around there while I was growing up. Those were the days.................................

    Here are a couple from a vacation a few years ago.
    The first one is in Arkansas City, KS.
    The others are the first Philips 66 in Texas.

    Here is another one of my favorite pictures...
    I stole this gas station off of the HAMB site and had the original car taken out and my '49 Chevy photoshopped into it... way cool I think !
