The first time I saw that Haffner in downtown Lowell I thought I was seeing things it's seems like a blast from the past.they seem to be a pretty big gas and oil company .How old is the company.

Good for Haffner's for advertising "Old School".More stations should do this,it would make me want to fill up there! What a great price for a gallon!!We get "hosed" in Canada.....and we got all the bleepin oil.Dave

There are 14 stations in the Lawrence Ma. area. Lawrence, Lowell, Methuen, Andover and Haverhill , Tweksbury Ma., And one in Hudson NH. http://www.haffnersoil.com/company_history.htm

Started in 1925.

I have other pictures but do not know how to downsize. Somewhere I have pictures of the Appleton St location in Lowell before they demolished it {not sure but maybe 15 years ago} and put up a new ugly station. It was a very nice classic station with a red terracotta tile roof. There is still one in Lawrence. They did keep the neon sign and installed it on the new station. The pictures above the globe picture are of that sign that they saved.

Well it's a few years later and I have found two more Haffner's globes to add to my collection. Also noticed the Benzol globe I have, has different lens on either side. So I guess I have five Haffner's globes but three are single lens. Still need an Ethyl globe. Maybe one will show up someday.
