Here are a couple of photos that I just got today of the California Garage in Los Alamos, California. Los Alamos was originally a stagecoach stop and then with the introduction of the automobile, became a highway service town on the Coast Highway (Highway 101). The town was bypassed in the late fifties and became a service station ghost town like many of the small towns along the way.

The Scolari brothers built this station in the late 20's or early 30's and then remodeled it in the 40's. They were Union 76 dealers as you can see...



Here's a shot from the side of the canopy with a customer at the island.



This is what it looks like today. It was recently sold and is undergoing some clean up and renovations. Not sure what the plans are for it, but it may be something new soon. It has been like this for at least 40 years.



Thanks for your participation everyone. Not sure if we will catch up with Kmann and his Collectible of the Decade on outboards, but let's keep trying!

I think I have found the location of this late 1950's Leonard station identified only as in the Jackson, MI area because of the power pole in the drive and also the one in the field behind the station. Located on old US-12 East of of Jackson.

Dave;
That is the same building. Look closely at the color pattern on the bricks on the side of the building. An exact match.
I'm really enjoying all these old station pictures.

I've got quite a few for you all to see.

Later . . .

Hy-Flash : I am jealous of all those pictures of Michigan gas stations you have.
This is my only picture of a Hy-Flash station. US-127 about 6 miles North of the Ohio line.

When I was at Union Oil, I found several thousand old pictures, along with their glass negatives. I was able to secure a box of duplicate pictures. In that box, I found two pictures of my wife's grandfather, taken about 1915. Like T-way, I'll try to post a couple a day for the next few weeks.

Same location 2007

The porcelin panels are not put on a cement block building as is the norm in Michigan, but just panels put together and yes that is day light showing through. Appears to galvanized inside.
