Spectacular station pics, Dave! The signage change reminds me of the famous Chicago picture of the "End of 66" sign coming down when Route 66 was decommissioned.
Obviously, this was first!

A COUPLE OF MAPS FROM OTHER COMPANIES ON THE LIST.
CONSOLIDATED WAS A DISCOUNT CHAIN WITH ABOUT 75 STATIONS IN WISCONSIN AND 3 IN THE "UP" OF MICHIGAN WHEN THIS MAP WAS PRINTED IN 1969.
OSCEOLA HAD REFINERIES AT REED CITY AND WEST BRANCH, MICHIGAN AT ONE TIME. OSCEOLA HAD STATIONS ONLY IN MICHIGAN AND WAS IN THE UNITED DEAL.

NAPH-SOL REFINING MARKETED THE ZEPHYR BRAND ONLY IN MICHIGAN AND WISCONSIN. NAPH-SOL HAD A REFINERY AT MUSKEGON. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY HAD AT GREEN BAY, MY GUESS A LAKE TERMINAL.
AN OLD TIMER WORKING AT THE MUSKEGON REFINERY (OLDER THAN ME) TOLD ME THAT WHEN MARATHON BOUGHT AURORA OUT AND CLOSED THE AURORA (OLD DUTCH) REFINERY AT MUSKEGON, THEY CHANGED THE CRUDE PIPELINE TO REFINED PRODUCTS THAT SUPPLIED BOTH REFINERIES. WITHOUT ADEQUATE LOCAL SUPPLIES OF CRUDE NAPH-SOL STOPPED REFINING.

Speedway / Starvin Marvin from the late 1980's - 1990's.





Note the race car.



From the Transcontinental Oil days.
