Mel's Service
St. Louis, MO
Mel's Service is a former "Denver-style" Texaco station. This station would have looked like this one in Wichita, KS when it was built. The stained glass Texaco window is original. [map]

former Texaco station [gone]
St. Louis, MO
This was another former "Denver-style" Texaco station. This building appeared to be long vacant when these photos were taken in 2010. Those strange supports on the roof must have held signs and lights to illuminate them. By 2014, the building was gone.

former Texaco station
St. Louis, MO
This is another former "Denver-style" Texaco station in even worse shape that the two above. The canopy section has been filled in on this one. A bit of the original stained glass window remained when these photos were taken in 2010. By 2014, the glass was gone and the station was still boarded up. [map]

former Texaco station
Warsaw, MO
This former Texaco station was built in 1930. It was vacant when these photos were taken in 2010. Since 2011, the building has housed Truman Lakes Bikes. The Texaco pole sign was either repainted or covered up with the new business name. [map]

former Texaco station
Lees Summit, MO
This former Texaco station was built in the early 1930s. It functioned as a gas station until 1974. The building was restored in the late 1990s. It now houses the Filling Station Bar-B-Q Restaurant. [map]

Bates Street Tire
St. Louis, MO
Bates Street Tire was built in 1930 as a Cities Service station. The bay building in the back was built in 1988 to match the style of the original building. [map]

former station
Independence, MO
This former station now houses Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity. The long-vacant building was nearly demolished in 1993. However, it was spared due its connection with Harry Truman who used to gas up his car here. In 1996, this station was used during the filming of Robert Altman's movie "Kansas City." [map]
