former B/A station
Newtonville, ON
This former B/A station was built around 1955. B/A, aka British American Oil, was founded in 1906. In addition to this nicely restored station, there are vintage B/A signs and other items on display. At one time, this building was used by Grist Mill Auctions but there doesn't appear to be a business operating there now. For more, see this website. [map]

former Fina station
Windsor, ON
This former Fina station now houses an Oil Gard location. There are at least a couple other former Fina stations of this design in Windsor. For more, see this website. [map]

former station
Windsor, ON
This former station housed Integrity Auto Sales. The building appeared to be vacant in 2011 when this photo was taken. It still seemed to be vacant in 2015. [map]

former Joy Oil Co. station
Toronto, ON
This castle-style station was built in the late 1930s for the Joy Oil Co. There were at least 16 other locations that looked like this one but this is the only one left. This former station was deteriorating and nearly demolished before it was moved across Lake Shore Blvd. in 2007. These photos are from that year. The station is actually two separate structures. The turreted building served as the office while the larger building was used for service bays. In 2008, the buildings were restored. There were plans to use them as a snack bar and information center. However, as of 2014, they remain vacant. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. [map]

former Texaco station
Saskatoon, SK
Canadian Tire
Toronto, ON
This Texaco station was built in 1929. It was known as the West Side Service Station until 1943 when it became the Little Chief Service Station. In 2002, the building was converted for use as a police station. This same design was used in the U.S. Another example can be found in Canfield, OH. [photo thanks Elissa H.] [map]

This Canadian Tire station was designed by Bob McClintock. The style was developed in 1968. There were 30 built of various sizes. There are a couple of other surviving stations in Mississauga and Hamilton. There is or was one in Orillia, ON. Does anyone know of any others that are still left? For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]
