I was browsing an old neighborhood newspaper called Southwestern Times. The issue is dated May 3, 1945.

The owner of the Shell gas station was Geo. J. Linenkugel. The address was 6702 South Main St. At Southgate Blvd.





Hmm. I think South Main has been renumbered. Well, Google Maps has been showing the wrong locations for South Main. I need to edit my response to the cycle rental thread. 6702 South Main now, is South of OST. Here's the 1944 aerial with the Shell station circled

Discovered a hidden service station/gas station. On Google Earth I can't see a good picture of it.  Looks to be in front of a motel, or residential development.

From the newspaper Southwestern Times dated August 8, 1946.
