Does anyone have any photos of one of these stations? They were in Dallas in the '20's. I am specifically interested in the one that was located at the corner of Davis and Tyler in Oak Cliff. The building is currently Abruzzo's Italian Restaurant.

What is a Gasol station? Jim

Jim, I'm guessing Gasol was a brand, or a franchise, like Good Luck.

Yep, it was a brand WAY back in the day. I was researching the building for a friend and suspected it was probably built as a gas station, due to its diagonal position on a corner. I found a Sanborn Travel Map from 1922 that shows the building and identifies it as a Gasol station. Hoping there might be a photo lurking somewhere that shows the building around that time. While I doubt anyone ever shot a photo specifically of the station, I am hoping it might be found in a background somewhere.
