Afternoon all. Had some Internet issues with the "Idevices" but got it straightened out now. Time for another addition of FATW! Went to Harvard,il a couple weeks back,and finally stopped and got a couple pics of this old station..must have been quite a place in its day!




And while on a job the other day,I stopped and saw a friends backyard display.several items came from me..


I really like the look of the shed. To bad his "nice " neighbor has called the health inspector on him because of the tank.nothing in it,but they are trying to make him get rid of it.hes fighting it.

Last are a couple pics from another friend,who was up in N Dakota.


So lets see the pics of the stuff you have found on your hunting travels,and thanks in advance for the pics! Take care all!

I'll try to check into that……There is a small 2nd floor now but i'm not sure if it was always there or maybe just a tall impressive ceiling…..

Mick--
The Harvard station was owned by Shields Oil. At one point in time they carried Cities Service. It's a great station. I wish someone would completely restore it.

Saw this on vacation. The building is fairly generic, but the name and mountaintop location are pretty cool.

I almost forgot about the pics I took when I went back home to Kyle a few weeks ago. The first two are the sign at the golf course, it's been there for over 30 years. I would think that would be from either Gordon Turner's bulk station, or our cousin's former B/A station as they both switched to Gulf in '69.


The station lights and the pumps have been on my radar for quite a while now and hopefully someday I can land them.





The old dealership is a small town called Conquest, and the B/A sign is in the laneway of an acreage outside of Outlook Sask.




Ken.

Gulf or Golf-its all nearly the same phonetically isn't it Ken?

Cools pic's. If I lived in the area....I'd be buying that dealership to house my collection and building a house on the property.

Unfortunately, Saskatchewan is not on my list of places to build a retirement home in.

TheGriffin, you weren't too far from my place when you were at that farm. I have stopped in there several times to try and buy that Spur pump. You also weren't too far away from a set of 36B's all original branded Pure.

Went to Floydfest {a music festival} yesterday. It rained hard last night and the tent leaked badly. Cold and wet all night, so I decided to blow off the rest of the festival and go home. Stopped for breakfast down the road at what use to be a Gulf station. Still had the Men's and Women's signs on the doors and this map holder on the wall.

I think I'm getting hungry!! Great pics all! And thank you. If you are on the road this week,(Iowa gas or anywhere) take a few extra minutes and drive that back road ,take that picture. I can't tell you how much I love to see all the pics of stuff that's still out there. And it may not be tomorrow! I'm gonna make sure I take a little more time ,and cruise to see if I can find at least a couple pics of places that are hardly seen! Hope you will do the same!! Till next month, mick
