Chances are that you have seen a photo or a postcard of this well known and interesting gasoline station in the past. Just recently we were able to learn the full details of the Texaco Airplane Filling Station, which was built in 1929 by Henry and Elmer Nickle (pictured). The unique landmark was located on the Clinton Highway (near Callahan Road) in Knoxville, Tennessee. See all the details of this unique piece of Americana in the thumbnails (below).
