2701 N Campbell Ave, Tucson, AZ — I almost hit my brakes when I first saw this station. Haven’t seen such a fine example for many years. These stations come from the times when service stations meant just that.
Gas was pumped for you, your oil was checked, your windows were cleaned. And the service was delivered with a smile. Oh, those were the days!
This style of Texaco was designed by Walter Dorwing Teague and were built throughout America in the 60s. Many were update in the 80s and the 90s, but this design seems more classic.
Texaco is a shortened form of The Texas Company. At one point it was the only company selling gasoline under the same name in all 50 states. Independent until 2001, it merged into the Chevron Corporation and its station franchises divested into the Shell Oil Company.
This building now serves as the home of Schroeder’s Auto Service.
