The Amador Garage, located in Dublin, California is one of two 1920s filling stations featured today. The City is located about twenty-five miles southeast of Oakland in the East Bay region and just north of Pleasanton. At the time this postcard image was taken it was a rural community; the town was founded by Irish immigrants in the 1850s.
The Gasoline Station and Garage were operated by LeRoy Myers, second from the right with his son is standing in front of him, and his employees at his sides. Out front at the gasoline pump island, Associated Gasoline was dispensed from a pair Bowser electric pumps, just to the left is a Reo passenger car that was converted into a tow truck.
