You can see the reflection of the globe in the window. I dont recognize them. Anyone have any guesses/thoughts as to what brand the lenses advertise??

I like how the Mobil station from the late 50's is repurposing the old tombstone sign.

85 years ago... the Gilmore Oil Co. entered the Seattle, WA territory. On March 10, 1930, the 1st gallon of Gilmore Blu-Green gasoline is pumped from a JOY pump, into Seattle Mayor Frank Edwards' car...

Found this on a local historic site. About 4 miles from me. There is a Sunoco there today.

JR, if I am not mistaken the last Gilmore Station in SW WA, was in Chehalis. Not sure that the Station is still there? But it was, approx. 20 years ago... There was a little plaque on one of the canopy supports, put up by the Station Owner....

There is/was a story; That the Owner of the Gilmore Station was not pleased with the merger and that subsequent Station Owners kept the plaque on the support, in remembrance... (as I said, it is a story and I have no way of knowing if it is/was true or not.... If true, I can relate... After almost 50 years... I am still upset about Tidewater selling out to Phillips 66)

unfortunately this picture stinks. At lease you can see the main signage pretty good. But I had to post it cuz you don't see vintage pics of this brand all that often.
"Speedway 79" becomes "Marathon" when it was bought up in 1959.

Thanks for sharing that, Bob. Be cool to see it/read what it said.
