Gulf Gas Station
Bedford, Pennsylvania
Photo and info courtesy Moon Mullins OX-76

This Art Deco gas station is featured from time to time on PBS television. The Gulf Station is the original cookie, unrestored from the 1930's. Classic "flying wedge" litestand (between gas pumps) manufactured by two companies, Flair and Willoughby, in the 50's & 60's. This is a "must-see" if you're ever in the Bedford, PA area.

A "standard Route 1 drive-thru gas station." This gas station is still in great condition with barrel-tile roof, and a pressed tin ceiling under pull-thru. The pumps are now gone but poles and standards are still standing guard, less signage. Next door is an old car repair garage probably dating back to the 1930's or 40's.

The Gulf sign was at a station on Route 20 near Sturbridge, MA but the station is now closed and the sign gone. Hopefully, it went to a good home and wasn't destroyed. 04-07
