Before it was a Union 76 station it was a Pure station. It would have said Pure above the center bay door. The blue roof is another indication that it was a Pure station.
Glad you were able to save some stuff.

Nice catch!
Where exactly were the "Do Not Clean w/Gasoline" signs located in the station?
Also,is this station on Rt.14 just over the Wisco border?
