former Sinclair station
Donaldsonville, LA
This former Sinclair station was restored around 2009. The building was vacant when these photos were taken in 2010. Before the restoration, there were Marfak Lubrication signs over the bay area. This appears to indicate that the station was used as a Texaco at one time. By 2013, the building as housing the Salon J'Adore hair salon. For more, see this website. [map]

former Sinclair station
Houma, LA
former Sinclair station
New Orleans, LA
This former Sinclair station in Houma has been converted into the Scarlet Scoop ice cream shop. The service bay at the left and the canopy on the right have been walled up. The Scarlet Scoop has been around since about 1970 but I don't know if the business was always in this building. [map]

This former Sinclair station in New Orleans was probably built in the 1930s. In 1937, it was known as the Chauvin Service Station. By the 1960s, it has become a Texaco. After the station stopped selling gas, it continued to function as a repair shop. The building was vacant for several years after following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. By the time of this photo in 2010, the station was restored but was privately owned and not used for commercial purposes. By 2014, the building housed Rehage Entertainment. [map]

former Sinclair station
Many, LA
This former Sinclair station housed the Capitol Salon when these photos were taken in 2010. The canopy on the left has been filled in to create interior space. The building appeared to be vacant in 2014. In 2016, the the Gulf Station Cafe opened in the building. The building did house a Gulf station at some point. [map]

former station
New Orleans, LA
This former station appears to have been a Sinclair. There was most likely a canopy attached to right part of the building. In 2010 when these photos were taken, the building appeared to be vacant. The building had been repainted by 2014 but still looked vacant. [map]

former station
Houma, LA
This former station does not seem to be the right configuration or proportions to have been a Sinclair. The details seem to be an attempt to mimic Sinclair's castle style buildings. This building appeared vacant or at least not in commercial use when this photo was taken in 2010. In 2012, the building had been painted grey and was housing the New York Bagel Cafe & Deli. [map]

New Orleans, LA
This former station looks like it had been used as a tire shop for many years. These photos are from 2010. Does anyone know when this station was built and what brand of gas was sold here originally? The building was vacant in 2016. [map]

This former station in Abbeville housed JD's Meat Market when this photo was taken in 2010. By 2013, the business had closed. [map]

LaPlace, LA
This former station housed a limousine service when these photos were taken in 2010. This was probably built as a Pan-Am station. [map]

I believe the More Mileage Station has been vacant since around 2003 when it housed a sportings goods store. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This porcelain enamel sign once had neon. [map]
