My good friend Bud sent this picture and story:



One day I watched a man going over my motorcycle so closely I thought he
was intent on stealing it. Turned out he owned several, has a small museum
of them and drove a bulk transport truck for Martin Oil Service during the
same time I worked in their terminal for Texas Eastern pipeline. A short
time later he called me to his place of business where I met another former
Martin employee that I had gauged many a tank with. He had brought a globe,
my new friend already had one like it so it became mine for a very
reasonable price. My friend has all the Martin globes that we know of and I
had my first real globe!

When I got my first gas pump it had this Skelly ad glass in it.



It came from a Catholic convent farm in the area that was being sold for development. I thought that was some cool history so I wanted to keep it Skelly. It had a crude metal patch in the globe holder and I thought that the Nuns may have not had a globe on it or never replaced the original when it was broken. But when I saw the perfect match globe for that ad glass at a swap meet in Illinois soon afterwards, well, I just had to have it. That's my first globe story and I'm stickin' to it.

Fins n vtwins sent this picture and story. Cool globe! Thanks Mike.



This isn't really my first globe(that was a Sinclair Pennant--another story for another time) but it's the first REAL globe I had "access" to. Came out of the local Cities Service bulk plant that I've dipped into over the years, and nobody seems to know where it came from or anything about it. All I could verify is there is another one floating around out there with a cracked lens. I tried to buy this one several times over a period of years, but it was too high(I thought). The cracked one eluded me more than once, too. Don't know exactly why, but I like it.
On an antique shopping trip to southern KY 4 or 5 years ago, I found the matching porcelain sign, so I knew I'd have to own that globe---no matter what! Finally got a chance to trade into it last year and I doubt I'll ever let it go.
I know it's nothin' special--no graphics or historical relevance, but I think it's cool to have something DIFFERENT that (almost) nobody else has!

I missed this thread last month. So here is my first and only globe. I have had it for about 14 years. My father found two of them in the attic of a building owned by my family. It had been a station years ago.
