former Ball service station
Wellington, TX
This former station in Dallas might have been in use as a private residence or office when this photo was taken in 2011. [map]

The Ball service station was built in 1919. The canopy and roof collapsed around 2007. This photo is from 2011. The station is supposedly being restored. However, the building looked basically the same in 2018. Some of the bricks on the corners have been replaced and stablized. The roof and doors are still missing. The building is still surrounded by chain link fencing. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

This former station was owned and operated by Zim Zimicki. The Zim's building also housed a restaurant and Dr. Pepper bottling plant. It now houses a pottery shop. [map]

Magnolia Petroleum Building
Dallas, TX
The Magnolia Petroleum Building was built in 1920. The flatiron-shaped building had offices above and sold gas under the canopy. The building is also referred to as the Triangle Point Building and the KLIF Building. KLIF, a Dallas radio station, used the building for its studios from 1964-1980. [map]

Grimes Garage
Hillsboro, TX

2011:

2018:
This Grimes Garage was built in 1906. The building originally had two large windows at the sides of a central entrance. A car and tires were displayed in the windows. At some point the entrance doors and the window on the left were removed to create this canopy for servicing cars and selling gas. By the 1940s, the garage was serving as a Texaco station with 14 pumps. The garage closed in 1965. The building housed Classic Auto Memories for many years. Sometime after 2016, that business was gone. In 2018, the building was repainted and Lone Star Fossils had moved into the building. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

former Madison Garage
Del Rio, TX
former station
Shamrock, TX
The Madison Garage was built in 1930. I assume there were gas pumps under the canopy. [map]

The Robert L. More gas station was built around 1914 and leased to various owners. Robert L. Moore bought the building around 1933. The station has been closed for many years. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]

former station
Texarkana, TX
This former station was built in 1925. It was originally known as the 999 Service Station. "999" was the station's phone number. The "999" opal glass letters at the tops of the columns were backlit at night. There were also large "999" letters on the building under the canopy on the office walls. In the late 1960s, the station was selling Conoco and Goodrich Tires. The building now houses King of Audio. [map]
