former Texaco station
Anniston, AL


This former Texaco station was a repair shop for many years. These photos are from 2007. By 2019, the building had been repainted white and green. Some plastic Sinclair letters were stuck on the canopy. [2007 photos thanks Tim Ross] [map]

former Texaco station
Selma, AL
This former Texaco station is an example of the company's Matawan design. The first of this type was built in Matawan, NJ in 1964. I think the last one was built in 1974. This station in Selma was there by 1966. The building now houses the Selmont Service Center. [map]

former Gulf station
Mobile, AL
This former Gulf station now houses Southern Glass. [map]

former Amoco station
Birmingham, AL
This former Amoco station was built in 1950. It still had scars from the Amoco letters over the service bay. The building had been vacant for many years. In 2023, the building was painted white and black. This may have been a Pan-Am station originally. Pan-Am later became Amoco. For more, see this website. [map]

former Amoco station
Tuskegee, AL
This former Amoco station building housed the Torch Cafe. I believe it was built in the late 1950s. The building's torch, part of Amoco's logo, has long been missing its flame. This building has been abandoned for many years. Evidently, it was a FINA station in its last days. For more, see this website. [map]
