The weather is getting a lot nicer, so let's get out and shoot some great station photos! I know I'll try to get at least a couple this weekend.


If you can look past the cheesy enclosure of the canopy, and the terrible added-on pitched roof with corrugated gables, this is a fantastic little station.



Let's look closer at the round tiles over on the left side...


Neat tile work at the corners, too:

On our trip to Iowa a couple of weeks ago we stopped at Shoemakers Truck Stop in Lincoln, NE. As we walked in my sons said hey look its a clock face. Then looked at his wrist, we had a good laugh. I told him to do it again so we grabbed this shot. Then we saw the Wayne, got bug eyed and had an OMG moment. Fun trip.

Here are a couple I found last weekend. The first two are in Correctionville, Iowa. The first one is called the Rock Station built in 1934 from stones from the local river. The second is a really cool Cities Service station with the roof being made with porcelain tiles. and the last one is in Cushing, Iowa. They were cleaing that old station out and I got to look around. Only thing I found was buckeye nozzle which I bought.

Great pics from Correctionville, Keith! The rock station is most likely Skelly. They had backlit square glass Skelly signs to fit windows like the one on the gable of that building. The Cities Service is fantastic, and very well preserved. Can you imagine fixing that place up to display a collection and use as a workshop?

Yeah! I could put a pump in each of those window displays. The added on part is used for a construction company or some thing like that for their shop. I would love to have the main part of the old station.

I saw these last week when visiting my parents in FL. We had taken their boat out on the Gulf and took a trip cruising up a river. These were taken from the boat.
