Tower and station are supposed to be the same location. Tower is before 1930. It a was one story restaurant for a golf course in the 1970's and a parking lot today.

The FitzGerald brothers operated the Texaco stations in the Santa Ynez Valley. In the late fifties they were running three stations. Two were on the corner of Highway 101 diagonally across from each other so that they could catch either the south or north bound traffic. They also operated a store next door to the southbound station. The northbound station was right next door to the famous Andersen's Pea Soup restaurant. They also had a Danish style station in the nearby town of Solvang.

Here's the southbound Highway 101 station in Buellton and their store.

Here's the Solvang station right after it opened.

The FitzGeralds also operated the Gaviota store and station in the fifities and sixties. This is what it looked like when it first opened in the early 1900's.

Thank you to everyone for posting your pictures and looking in on this showcase. Nothing better than looking at old gas station photos. (Well, almost nothing...)
