Great photos from all over the place! Keep on posting we have a long way to go to catch up to Kmann's outboard post!

The photo above was my alternative banner. It shows the Robbins Shell station in Los Alamos California. This is one of only two stations that are still pumping gas in Los Alamos. The other one is a Chevron that was built much later. At one time when Highway 101 ran through the center of the small town there were between 8 and 10 places to buy gasoline including small pumps in front of the General stores.

Here is another great one. This one is from Whitehouse,Ohio. I believe this station was a Paragon station before it was a Sunoco Station. There was a Paragon station listed at that corner about 1925. Later on the building was moved about 4 miles down the road and become the Evergreen Inn which was been torned down. That corner now is a parking lot for the Whithouse Inn.

Does anybody have pictures of Paragon Refining Gas Stations? There was about 65 of them in Ohio.

Sunday December 16th - "Photo of the day"

A great shot of a Gilmore Station.

Wouldn't you just love to stumble onto that neon Lion sign stuck in a barn somewhere?

Later . . .
