former Texaco station

former Texaco station
Oklahoma City, OK
This former Texaco station was built in 1929 in a Spanish Mission style building with vigas projecting from below the roofline. In the mid-1950s, porcelain panels were installed on the building during conversion to Texaco's Teague design. The station was known as Elmer's Texaco from 1953 until it closed in 1978. These photos are from 2011. The building remained vacant until 2014 when it was restored and reopened as The Pump Bar. The Texaco's "Service You Can Trust" ghost letters were still visible on this building at that point. When the station was restored, the owner bought a Texaco sign from Memphis. The vintage pole is used to support a modern sign for The Pump. The Texaco sign is displayed inside the bar. [map]

This former Cities Service station housed the Speedometer Service Co. for many years. By 2015, the building had been painted blue and was housing the Henbit Market. One source says that this station was built around 1933; another says 1939. I would date it a little later. [map]
