Hello All,

Does anyone have any history and or old black & white pics of Chief Stations? Any pics of the Washington, Idaho, Montana or Oregon would be appreciated. I am trying to see some pics of pumps with the logo on. The earlier the better. Thanks!!!

Was there ever REALLY a globe with the same logo as the globe in this pic?? I was told this pictured globe was made in the last 10 to 20 years as a batch of 50. Just curious if they were fantasy pieces or a EXACT copy of REAL version ?????

That is a very cool picture Randy. Art Deco canopies completely covering the pumps with round ends and neon on them !! Imagine those lit up at night. What a very cool Art Deco look.

That repop globe is modeled after the station sign and not after an original globe as shown in picture 1. Thank god, not to be mistaken easily.
