According to a couple of posts on the Internet, by John O., this old gas station was owned by a man named L.B. Andersen in 1954. It was a Texaco station at the time. L.B. was 66 in 1954.

If you knew L.B. Andersen and would like to contribute any additional information on the man and/or the station, please contact us!

It appears that this gas station was located on a major route at the time. Also, a 1920s map labels Herring Avenue as Henning Avenue.

Note the building on the left looks very interesting! Maybe an old Spanish style motel?
