former station [gone]
Birmingham, AL

2007:

2010:
This former station was topped with a traditional looking house. I understand there was another one like this in town that was demolished. By 2010, the building was vacant. Sometime between 2011 and 2015, the building was demolished.

former Texaco station
Gadsden, AL
This former Texaco station is probably from the 1920s or 1930s. These photos are from 2010. The building was repainted by 2014. Unfortunately, the glass Texaco star window detail under the canopy had been painted over or removed. [map]

former Gulf station
Roanoke, AL
This former Gulf station has been used in recent years as a car wash. [map]

former station
Russellville, AL
This former station looks like it's probably from the 1920s. The building appeared vacant when these photos were taken in 2010. Does anyone know the history of this building? [map]

former station
Evergreen, AL
This former station housed the Fish House restaurant in 2008. It has been vacant since then. It appears to be from the 1920s or 1930s. [map]

former station
Ozark, AL
This former station has housed Matthews' Dale Florist & Gifts since at least 2004. [map]

former Gulf station
Eufaula, AL
This former Gulf station was built in 1925. The incredible, huge shelter structure behind the station was apparently built at the same time and must have been used as a service area. I don't believe any other surviving Gulf stations have this. The buildings are apparently now owned and used by the city. [map]
