Esso / Exxon, 6015 Farrow Road: 1970s   1 comment

Posted at 12:44 am in Uncategorized






This former Exxon is on Farrow Road where it intersects with Broadland Avenue and is now an independant auto repair operation. I wish it had been a sunnier day so these pictures were less gray and dreary, but that's the way it was, and I don't go by there very often.

Admittedly my closing date is just a guess here, as is postulating that this station started as an Esso, but the gull-wing lights lead me to think it was built before 1970, and the Esso/Exxon switch didn't happen until 1973.

Furthermore, the rounded style of the kerosene pump together with the fact that the price only has two digits (plus 1/10ths of a cent) leads me to think the station didn't make it past the 1970s.

  1. Not sure why the Exxon Kerosene pump is there, but this station appears to be a Shell ranch design, not Exxon. The Exxon ranch had exposed beams projecting forward above the bays. Maybe it switched to Exxon after Shell.
