Today’s feature image is a view of the 72 St. Service & Save filling station located in Tacoma, Washington. The promotional photo dated May 5, 1951, appears to have been taken at the station on opening day by new management of the facility. Another picture of the operation exists showing five men who were manning the gas pumps that day.
The station apparently was owned by the Time Oil Co. which operated a refinery located on the industrial tide flats in the City on Marshall Avenue. Share with us what you find of interest in this photograph courtesy of the Tacoma Public Library.
