Old Sinclair Gas Station Photos

Old Sinclair Gas Station Photos

I think that these photos of a Sinclair Gas Station are from the late 1930s. Gas was only 18 cents back when these were shot! There are signs on the shop for “tire vulcanizing”, Sinclair Gasoline, auto storage (cost $1 for a week), and inside I can make out an ad for Ponds skin cream. It appears that there was a car wash behind the building, or maybe that’s a picture of a different building.

These pictures were found on some 1960s slides, when someone had obviously tried to preserve or duplicate the originals.
