former station
Houma, LA
2010: 2019:
This former station does not seem to be the right configuration or proportions to have been a Sinclair. The details seem to be an attempt to mimic Sinclair's castle style buildings. This building appeared vacant or at least not in commercial use in 2010. In 2012, the building had been painted grey and was housing the New York Bagel Cafe & Deli. [map]

former station
New Orleans, LA
This former station looks like it had been used as a tire shop for many years. These photos are from 2010. Does anyone know when this station was built and what brand of gas was sold here originally? The building was vacant in 2016. [map]

former station
New Orleans, LA
This former station has been abandoned since at least Hurricane Katrina in 2005. This may have been a Gulf station originally. [map]

former Gulf station
Arabi, LA
former station
New Orleans, LA
This former Gulf station in Arabi was built in 1927 as Serignan's Gulf Service. The station has been in continous operation since then, except for a period after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. [map]

This former station in New Orleans was built in 1918. It was converted into a residence starting around 2003. The Sinclair sign was added around 2012. It's not believed that this was ever a Sinclair station. It may have been a Gulf or a Texaco. For more, see this website. [map]

former station
Arcadia, LA
This former station may have been a Standard Oil station originally. It is now used as a car wash. [map]

former station
Tallulah, LA
This former station now houses C&M Tires. The building is probably from the 1920s or 1930s. [map]

former station
Abbeville, LA
former station
Robeline, LA
This former station in Abbeville housed JD's Meat Market when this photo was taken in 2010. By 2013, the business had closed. In 2019, the lot was surrounded by chain link fencing. [map]

The canopy portion of this former station in Robeline has been walled up to create interior space. This building now houses a Sabine State Bank & Trust Co. branch. [map]

LaPlace, LA

2010:

2019:
This former Pan-Am station was housing a limousine service in 2010. by 2016, the building has been repainted and was housing J&J Body & Auto Shop. [map]

former Pan-Am station
Houma, LA
This former Pan-Am station now houses C&J Tires. This building probably had a canopy originally like the station shown above. The bay building has been missing its walls since at least 2008. [map]

More Mileage Station
Jennings, LA
I believe the More Mileage Station has been vacant since around 2003 when it housed a sportings goods store. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This porcelain enamel sign once had neon. [map]

former station [gone]
DeRidder, LA
This former station had been vacant for at least a few years when these photos were taken in 2010. By 2014, these buildings had been demolished.
