Humble Oil was founded in Texas in 1911. Their stations were once found throughout Texas. They later merged with Standard Oil and were rebranded as Exxon in 1972. This is the last Humble Oil station left standing and it's here in San Antonio. You can still see the Humble Oil logo over the door.
By the way, unlike the word "humble" - Humble, Texas has a silent "h". It's pronounced "umble."
I read that route often. There's still supposedly a meter there somewhere, but it's marked "vacant" and I've never been able to find it.ReplyDelete
sad, when a piece of history fades away like this, Just think how many local boys had worked there, neighbor's cars that were filled or fixed there. Every building tells a story, a service station tells many.ReplyDelete
Now there a good title for a book, "The Last Humble Oil Station in Texas."ReplyDelete
The building is stunning. Turn it into a coffee shop and it will become a famous destination.
Where is it located. I am a local photographer and would love to shoot a bridal or even a senior session...Great Pic!!!ReplyDelete
I can't say that I've seen this personally myself or if I have I don't remember. I did a quick google search and found the following link. Rob hopefully this link will help you locate it. I'll also ask Cybrarian and see what he says. I agree with you it would be a great place to shoot.ReplyDelete
Greensboro: It would indeed make a great title.
DAG: I love to pass by those old places. Some are even still in service, while others are being used as something else.
Alan: You must have seen some sights on those walks of yours. I don't get to walk with leisure much anymore, but everytime I think of some of the locations I've seen and without a camera I wish I could go back in time.
