Hi everyone, I decided to take the month of March and post some history on Sinclair. Would love for others to join in and show some of your Sinclair pictures, collections, or any information you have to add to it.

Being founded by Harry F. Sinclair in 1916 here are some of the first stations that got the company started.....

SINCO being the first logo used

By 1913 Harry F. Sinclair owned more than sixty oil companies, most of which were in Oklahoma, making him the largest independent oil operator in the Mid-Continent Region. In 1916 he bought the Cudahy Refining Company of Chicago which owned several pipelines and refineries. Seizing the opportunity, Sinclair moved from Tulsa to New York, secured $50 million in financing, and formed the Sinclair Oil and Refining Corporation by combining all his companies into one entity.
