Probably the first non major brand of gas in the area (Binghamton, NY). I remember it as early as the 50s, but could be earlier. It was on what was a major route and they had a small similar building on the opposite side of the road with pumps. Got 'em comin' and goin'. Pipe's ran under the road.

I found out some more info on this place. Originally the garage bays were in the basement. Used to drive around back where the back basement wall was exposed. They have since been sealed and backfilled.

Dr. Dave,

Sorry it took me a while to respond, I was out of town. I drove by it but there isn't a number on the building. The small building across the street (K Snell Auto) had pumps to catch traffic both ways is 573 Court St, Binghamton, NY 13904. It's real close to the city/town line, so it may physically be in Kirkwood, NY. Here is a Google map link:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/K...5d376a81b!8m2!3d42.1047678!4d-75.8563954

I'd like to know what you find. Good Luck

Al

Man, the possibilities. Remodel with living space and a really neat place to display your collection.

Love the masonry work on both the old gas station buildings.
