Today's photo is a nice Union 76 station advertising 'Rocket Fuel'.

Note the three matching visibles under the canopy and the one stand-alone visible at the LH side.

This appears to have been taken in the late 1930's.

Later . . .

Jim's picture above links Union Oil with a "Rocket" advertising theme. I recently acquired a very old and rare Union globe. The person I bought it from found it in an old barn, along with another globe with a rocket on it. He said that somewhere in the last 45 years he broke the rocket globe and threw it out. This picture may indicate that the rocket globe this man had was a Union advertising piece, which is something I believe Union collectors were not aware of.

In the box of photos I have, there were several marked "Death Valley" and "Mining Camp". They look to be related. I'm not quite sure if Union had some mines in Death Valley in the 20's and 30's that had follow on fueling requirements. The "Union Ethyl" advertising car, along with the "Speed and Power" sign, indicate that the pumps were probably more than just for the mining camps.

Here's a couple from COTM-PURE,November. There are several more on page 4 of COTM. I still have several others. I'll try to post a few. I'll have to admit that the cottage stations all look pretty much alike after you look at a few.

Notice Energee Diesel pump plate. I've never seen this version before.

Notice 42" glass domed neon sign.

Bob Drake didn't think that we were doing the Sinclair brand justice so he sent me a plethora of pictures to post. Thanks Bob! It might take me awhile to post all of them but here are some...
