School Bus at Gas Station




Today's picture shows a school bus loading up at a Gas Station. one wonders if the students are on a trip and stopping for fuel and a break. The picture was from 1940.

I have not seen a Texaco gas station in a long time. It used to be one of the more popular ones but perhaps has been bought out by one of the other oil companies.

  1. Here's quote from Wikipedia about Texaco. "Texaco was an independent company until its refining operations merged into Chevron Corporation in 2001, at which time most of its station franchises were divested to the Shell Oil Company. It began as the Texas Fuel Company, founded in 1901 in Beaumont, Texas, by Joseph S. Cullinan, Thomas J. Donoghue, Walter Benona Sharp, and Arnold Schlaet upon the discovery of oil at Spindletop."

  3. I know there's an old Texaco station around here somewhere. I just can't remember where - even though I can see it as clearly as I can see the dishes piled up in my sink. I may go looking for it, as an excuse to go roaming.
