King's Service Station, Afton
This is the extraordinary photo given to me yesterday by the King family during their visit to Afton Station. Mr. King's father is the second man from the right. They said that the family owned four service stations in Afton, but this one apparently no longer exists, since there are no buildings that even remotely resemble it standing now. It was a Conoco station on Route 66. If anyone who reads this blog can tell me any more about it, I'd appreciate it. Betty W. is also working on the dilemma. By the way, in the photo gasoline is selling for 15-cents a gallon!
