It is Larco gasoline, a brand of Veltex gas (originally Fletcher Oil Co.). If your family has any of those globes left, they are worth a decent amount (about $2k to $3k). The pump on the left is a Bowser 557. The pump in the middle looks like a Wayne 40, but I'm not 100% sure.

Hope this helps,
-Steve

Here are two pictures of those globes from recent auctions... (I hate to tell you, but one auction was just 2 1/2 weeks ago)

You can learn a lot through obituaries. Sometime from people who presided him in death. The will say survived by a son in "_______". Just an idea

Could be Idaho, Oregon, Washington, possible California. Pm me the name, address and any other info and be patient, I might be able to help, if I can figure it out I might also have a picture of the station. Dean
