My Dad's Esso/Exxon station. He had it for 25 years. I spent a lot of time there. Both working and hanging around.

My Dad retired 25 years ago. I wish at the time I had saved more. My brother has most of our pictures. I'm going to go through them next time I'm at his place in VA. I want to gather as much memorabila up as I can and decorate my garage with it. I do have two of his name plates that were over the door.

That is AWESOME that you have that.

I spent many years working for my Dad who owned 2 Texaco's and a Gulf Station back in the early 70's thru the mid 1980's and I do not have one single photo of any of his stations. I sure wish I had taken some pics but it never was a thought for me.
