Is that a pit to the left for sevice? Must be in the south. Too cold for that up north.

I remember racks made like the one shown from my youth, long long ago. Railroad ties were the popular material. Stacked about three high got vehicles high enough so you could sit up underneath.

I guess there is a sign at the pump, "The last guy that didn't pay is right out back".
That cemetery would still be there.I bet it has expanded and is now over that area of the station.

A neighbor of ours owned a successful service station on Highway 36, just outside of St Joseph, Mo. He had a drive on service ramp outside that he did oil changes on, and a small one car service garage that he mounted hundreds of tires for customers in. He did oil changes year round, regardless of the weather. He bought a different station and closed that on in the late 1960's.

Dallas it sure looks like one. And not to substantial in my book. I wouldn't get under it! I love the cute little building. So sad all these relics are just about totally gone. I think there's maybe one not far from Rich Binghams little piece of paradise in Idaho?

Ron, do you have any more info on those stations? I have lived in Mound City MO. (just up 275 highway, now 59 highway) most all of my life and have spent a lot of time in St. Joe. Had some kin there and my parents would go down there a lot to go shopping in the '50's and '60's. Always made a stop at Kresgies (forunner of K Mart) , the Plymouth Dept. store and all of those cool stores downtown. Do you remember Flinchpaus'(sp) Reptile Gardens near the intersection of the Belt Highway and Fredrick? A lot sure has changed from those times. Dave
