Bob's Oil Co.
Grand Forks, ND
Bob's Oil Co. was built in 1956 for the Torreson Oil Co. The station has been in continuous operation since then and the mid-century building with canted windows remains intact. In 2008, when the business changed hands, backlit plastic letters for Bob's Oil Co. were added to the roof above the office. The pole sign might be from the 1950s or 1960s. It is still maintained, and the channel letters are lit with double-stroke, red neon. The 18-foot-tall arrow is lit with chasing bulbs. For more, see this website. [map]

former Cities Service station
Grand Forks, ND
former station [gone]
Ayr, ND
This former Cities Service station in Grand Forks housed Econo Rent-A-Car when this photo was taken in 2011. "For People Going Places" was a Cities Service slogan. By 2018, the building was housing Boss Improvement. The sign on the roof was removed and the "For People..." lettering was covered up. For more, see this website. [map]

This former station in Ayr was part of the Cass County Pioneer Village. I don't know if this station was originally, or at any point, a Mobil station. This recreated village included a barber shop, bank, school, ice cream parlor, and train station. The buildings were all moved here and restored by Keith Johnson. He passed away in 2012 and this collection of buildings, cars, and other items was auctioned off. I don't think anything remains. For more, see this website.

former Phillips 66 station [gone]
Fargo, ND
This former Phillips 66 station was in use as a used car lot when this photo was taken in 2011. In 2018, the building was vacant. In 2019, it had been demolished.
