This station is still in business. The manager didn't know when it had been erected, but guess sometime in the 1930s. He said in the 1990s the station had been converted to AMOCO, and all the signs outside were covered over. In the early 2000 they were remodeling again and discovered what was under the AMOCO signs. It was decided to restore it back to what it looked like in the 30s. I believe this is the only Standard station in the St. Louis area.

That is a beautiful Station...

I wish it was in my "Hometown Area"... If it were, they would be charging me rent, because of the time I would be spending there!!!!!!!!!

I forgot to ask him what that big chimney was for. It looks like there is either a plate on it, or there once was.
