Ooh, Ooh, Ooh! I've been trying to get a Pure china item for awhile! Nice.

Here's another hunk of history:

1948—Pure has its best year for profits.
Pure approaches NASCAR to supply fuel in exchange for promotion considerations.
1949—Pure sells its stations in eastern Penn-sylvania to Gulf.
Pure purchases majority interest in Goldkamp Co. of Dayton, operator of ~40 service stations.
1950—Pure’s new R&D labs open in Crystal Lake, Illinois.

Here's a picture of the R&D lab building, courtesy of the Crystal Lake Public Library. This was on a placemat titled "Lost Crystal Lake," sponsored by the CL Historic Preservation Commission, CL Historical Society, and Downtown Crystal Lake/Main Street.

Here's another Pure-Restaurant-Motel combo, with a few Coke "buttons" tossed in.
This was the Garden Motor Court on U.S. 60, west of Ashland, KY.

1952—Pure acquires the remainder of Hickok, which is operated by the Pure Oil Products Company. Pure Oil Products abandons the “Hi-Speed” trademark, marketing under Pure’s brand names. Hickok merges with Pure Oil Products Co. of Ohio, wholly owned subsidiary of Pure: Hickok’s preeminence in the truck stop industry makes Pure a leader in the field.

I have 4 Pure globes. The Detonox is from a Pure purchase in the early 20's.



This sign is just after the Union merger, in the mid 60's

Glad you posted the Glenview station. I've been going nuts trying to remember where that was.
Will post more pix once I get my formerly favorite computer up & running.
