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]

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]

A plaque is displayed outside the station and the payphone is located inside. [map]
