Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Old Service Station

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Man, this is so choice.  It was a “hit the brakes!” moment when we ran across it. Fairly typical 1940s – 50s highway gas station.  When it was in operation, I say that inside was the cash register, some chairs, stove, coffee pot and a lot of cans of motor oil.

The sign has been re-purposed a couple of times and is just unreadable.  It could have been a Sinclair station originally…just a guess.  The company liked rounded corners and those strips above the door.

This is located on Hwy 25/70  (Asheville Highway) at the corner of Shady Road in Sevier County TN.  There’s a long-closed small feed store next to this building.

36.02090, -83.65296, if you’re interested.
