mobil curb sign and goodies - Sun Jun 30 2013 06:11 PM

Didn't put this in the BOTW because I didn't buy it yet, I put some money down and spoke for the mobil curb sign today , I have been interested in it for a while because my last Grandfather who is 86 and still is doing great remembers when this was a station and it has good local history to it , my older friend that has the sign does not own the station but it is next door to his farm and confirmed it was always a mobil station the best he could recall and said for sure this is where the the curb sign came from. I asked a age of the station and he said he was always told it was built in the teens? My grandfather said the 40's era is when he remembers it, its a granite block building as well. I was teasing my friend about the pickers and he said if the pickers were to ever show up he would run them off! I am not making that up either , hope you guys enjoy the station and his goodies as I asked permission to take pictures and share with you all , he said go for it!

You should buy the old station! That would be quite the project. Looks way cool. Building looks has nice bones to it as well.
Either way thanks for the pictures and nice lollipop sign.

Someone took some care with the front...if you ever find a photo, would love to see it there was some kind of mosaic signage at the front over the canopy.

Wow ! Travis Looks like a honey hole, I count three orange & black Phillips Signs. Also like the old stone structure.

Lol , that was good. Glad you all liked . He priced me the visible , but I am trying to talk him into putting up all 3 Phillips signs up on his building and putting the visible outside his shed on a little concrete pad , I even offered to do it for him he said he will give it a thought , he likes all this stuff like us , just says his age and health is a big factor ,I hope he takes me up on it , if we do you know I will post you guys pictures.
