Here is one more of the Texaco station on US 40 in the late 30's. Seems like the pumps changed fairly quickly. Tom.

Chuck posted a couple of shots of the Texaco museum in it's heyday. Here is the only vintage picture I could ever find, from the 1960's.

I need to get some present day shots of the old stations in town and then I will start a new topic..then and now.
Tom.

Tom: Glad to hear you are on the mend and being productive. In looking closer at that 1935 photo, the display pump looks like it has a Sky chief globe. That globe wasn't around in 1935, would have been a Texaco Ethyl....and it doesn't look like an Ethyl globe. But it does have the Texaco Ethyl Decal. Thoughts??
