Hey all I'm back. I hope I'm not infringing on our current COTM, Brad's doing a fine job, but I was granted permission to use some old calendar images and wanted to share.

Credits to Check The Oil magazine,

First one up is this scene from 1939 with kind of a different architectual style:


Close up of pumps and display case



More unique architecture circa 1932. How many globes are in the pic?


Lots of promotions and giveaways in this typical 50's scene.

I would guess the year of this Roxana station to be late twenties or early thirties from the common Shell globes on what could be National Simplex or Duplex pumps. Note the free standing globes on the fluted poles. I see these plain globes up for sale every now and then.



Couple more later year stations:

This has to be one of the coolest Shell stations I've ever seen a pic of. From Portland, Oregon 1933.



Close up of the pumps, looks like maybe Bowser 310's or Bennett 150's. Selling Green Streak on the right and Gasco on the left.



Another close up of the front with the unique building lettering and signage.



I'll post a few more pics I just won on ebay next weekend.

Still living in December! As promised here are some images from some nice photos I won on ebay recently. Car in the first one, maybe a Cadillac?





Caption on back of photo reads "the original tank wagon Centralia Wa 1916"

I think I've seen this station before.



Cars lined up, must have been waiting on the tanker?





Caption reads "Centralia Wa"

San Francisco?







Caption reads "Seattle Wa 1929" but looks older than that.

...make Jim's day - buy this book from Oldgas...it's 'eat-up' with Shell station photos from 1935 to 1962, with many 'shell-shaped' station photos...
