I have a photo of a Cliff Brice/Shamrock station in Cheyenne, Wyo. I took in 1958. However, I lack the computer knowledge to post it on here. If anyone wants a scan of the photo, email me at wwimer39@zoominternet.net and I will send you one.

Great pictures. I have a couple of history stories and pictures for you Colorado buffs.

I was in Pueblo junking some 15 years ago. I was working some of the bulk plants and old stations. There was a station owned by an Italian family. The man working there was some relation, but the owners seldom came in. He told me there was some "old mule" lenses in the back still in the box. Man, I worked on getting to see those lenses for years. One day the man came in my restaurant in Salida and I picked up his ticket. He told me to stop by next time I was in Pueblo. Of course I had to make myself wait a week. Anyway, I went down there in these were the result. It was a little let down, but what I piece of history. Hand painted on glass lenses. One extra lense is half painted.

The gramps globe I found in back of a old Garage in the San Luis Valley about 10 years ago. There was a small refinery in Alamosa (Oriental). The guy said it may have has some association. This might have been the one thing Clarence Svenson passed up. The door to the shed was not even closed. It was laying in the dirt. The owner said there was nothing in there.

I have quite a few more stories, but they will have to wait. The Cascade, I believe to by from Colorado also.

I do not have an extra tire sign. I worked on the one in the antique store for 8 years.

By the way, Andy Dandy was out of Ft. Collins, but started in a tiny town outside of Ft. Collins. I can not remember the name of the town right now, but I have a business card somewhere. Here is a picture of the pump which was eventually supplied to all of the gaseteria stations in the western United States for Pat Griffin. This invention made him super rich. No connection to Starkey pumps. I might post the gasateria lens later.
Here is a great ad for your enjoyment. Thanks.
