Men, see that tree out back?
Springfield, Missouri, 1959.
Same view today:
Now the location of Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium.
Is that Forrest Tucker (the actor) washing the windshield?
Not sure that this qualifies as an "old" gas station... but my model railroad club does feature this structure along its 50- plus scale miles of mainline, and naturally, I thought of our Miss Lizzie and her Texaco connection.
Speaking earlier of D-X gasoline, here's a vintage toy that I had back in the early 70s as a kid; my original was long-since lost in time, but I was fortunate enough to find one recently on eBay at a decent price, and it's only missing a few small pieces that can also be found on eBay.
I've actually been going back and purchasing the toys of my youth for my collection, just for fun...and maybe for the grandkids, when I'm finally gone.
Lotsa white in this image. Not coincidentally, I’m sure.
"Hmph, a blue collar tradesman. How he grins in desperate hope that we might bestow upon him some trifling gratuity. Ignore him, dear, until he learns to keep his place."
I never know where to post these "stores with gas pumps", but I guess here will do. I remember this store as "Hoppers" and I think it was razed in the 1990s. I drive by the location every time I come to town (Springfield, Missouri) from the farm.
She's doing it right, bub.
Never heard of Sears gas.
Love those whitewalls.
Well, they sold everything else, why not gas?
Highway 19 near Round Spring and the Current River Bridge in Shannon County, Missouri. Circa 1941.
Saw this one in Calistoga, ca this weekend. Still has the pumps-albeit it would be great if they dispensed wine.
This one is a repeat. This is the last full-service station left in town and it's closing this month. Opened in 1955.
I've shared this one previously as well, but here are a couple photos of the Spencer station "back in the day". On Route 66 (on one of the few original pavement stretches) in Lawrence County, Missouri.
