Shell Station

A Shell Station is a "must" for the layout as I worked at two of them in my early twenties. Neither one of them had canopies over the pumps but the buildings were larger with more stalls.

The first one I worked at was on Glenwood Avenue in Minneapolis Minnesota being my first job as a full time mechanic in 1963. The other one was on 14th Street and Grant South of downtown Minneapolis Minnesota while attending Dunwoody Institute.

  The road is closed at left as I haven't finished the scenery across the tracks yet. The era is definitely the early sixties with the bell ringer hose across the driveway pump island. Like all service station of that time, they offered T.B.A. products that meant, tires, batteries and accessories.
