That is Jack Gamble's home and station. He graduated HS from Barnsdall with my dad in 1956. (so he is old, LOL). The station was originally Conoco and my father tells stories or getting a "rationed" soda pop there during WW2 as a child. My father grew up about 100 yards down the alley from the Conoco station.

Regarding the signs. Not much if anything inside. The 50-75 signs outside is pretty much what is there.


Collect small Oklahoma Oil Co.'s 1920's-1940's. Barnsdall, Cushing, Eason, Marland, etc.

Saw what I thought were two old gas stations on Main St. in Sainte Genevieve, MO. After I talked to a local, I found out the cafe with the Fire Station sign really was an old firehouse. Could of swore it was a gas station. Still kind of cool.

The Hot Cars used car lot station makes me wonder if there is a Sinclair sign under that "Look! sign?

Jim,

It may have been a fire station, but it was probably a gas station before that.
