Paragon Oil Station Pictures I came across recently by accident when I was researching an oil & gas executive that was VP of Eastern operations Paragon Petroleum in Canada during the early '90's. Not sure if Paragon Petroleum was an offshoot of Paragon Oil but either way I did come across some pics of Paragon Oil's gas stations in Long Island at an artist website actually. Can anybody tell me if the two companies were affliated? I will give you the link here (whoever wanted it) http://www.frankjump.com/039.html

Long Island City, Queens taken Sept'97 and another was taken in April 2005 but building is from the 1940's I think

says Paragon Oil,


get back to me at pingfate@yahoo.com and reference Paragon Oil in the subject and I will reply to you

otherwise I'm too busy to figure out who is who & I'm outa here

MARK, THE UPPER CASE LOGO WAS USED UNTIL 1963, WHEN THE LOWER CASE LOGO STARTED USE...ALSO COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE "BAND-AID" LOGO SINCE THE EDGES "BUMP" OUT AT 3 AND 9 O'CLOCK.

THERE WAS AN EARLIER EXPERIMENTAL USAGE OF THE LOWER CASE LOGO BETWEEN 1956-1959 ON PRODUCTS BUT NOT STREETSIDE UNTIL 1963.
