I have had this six page Leonard brochure for at least 20 years.
But I had it out showing another collector when I realized I had a picture of the station.
I have had a picture of the the station almost as long.
I didn't connect the two because the picture is from around the Grand Opening in 1936.
The station opened selling Phillips 66 & started selling Leonard in 1940.

That is awesome Dave! Thanks for sharing. It is fun to research old properties/ buildings from the past and see how what they are like today.
