The caption on the back of this photo reads:
"1912-Shell's Seattle Dept. Westlake Ave. and Highland Drive. Site of present division office. Property acquired Sept. 27, 1912."
It's hard to get any detail in a 50 KB or under jpg image, but note the sign on the office to the left that says "American Gasoline Company".

The caption on the next one reads:
"1915 Show Place Shell station at Eastlake and Hamlin, Seattle gasoline was 12 cents a gallon, higher than the price of eggs."

Photo credits to Seattle Historical Society.

Frank Jordan's Shellane Bottled Gas sign on page 3 shows the same pecten as the one Jim White (leonardoil) asked about on page 1. Franks says he thinks that logo was from "the fifties and maybe the forties."

Location unknown, but I guess Southern Cal. I'll be posting more station pics if I can get through some copyright issues. Anybody else got any good station pictures?

A few more globes and thanks to Bob Drake for the pics

15" Green Streak, Shell's motor grade fuel, and #1 on my wanted list.

12 1/2" three piece globe, very rare, maybe only a couple known to exist, anybody have any info to add on this?

One piece "canteen" globe, not sure on the time frame for use, probably 20's.

Super Shell version
