2014:
This prefabricated metal former station was built in 1938. The city refers to it as the Bill Chun station. The building features a tiny office and a huge canopy. Around 1990, this was a Texaco station. I don't know what brand was sold here originally. The station has been vacant for many years. Between 2008 and 2014, the building was refurbished and the chain link fencing was removed. It was still vacant in 2015 but locally landmarked. For more, see this website. [map]

Lemon Cove, CA
This former station has been vacant since at least 2008. [map]

former station
Fresno, CA
This former station was built in 1926 as a Standard Oil station. Nearly half of the building was designed as an ice house. In 1928, the building was purchased by Russ Clements who operated the station until he died in 1986. The service building behind the station office (bottom row of photos above) was added in 1934. Both buildings now house Van Ness Auto Repair. Although there are Texaco and Standard pumps on display, this station never sold either. It was selling Chevron until it closed in 1998. Today, it is just a service garage. [map]
