Not sure this has been posted on here before. I just ran across it on the web. This guy is to be commended for saving this old station.

In the pics of the old stations, the one in Lagrange, Oregon, is the first Texaco station I have seen where the "Furfural'd" sign was used. It is on the lower left hand corner of the station.
