Vance Has Pure Gas

Posted By on Fri, Dec 12, 2008 at 4:00 AM

I have recently talked about a couple of old Pure Oil Stations in Memphis. One was on Madison; the other on South Front Street. Both were built in the 1930s in the company's distinctive "English Cottage" style. You should also know, if you had been paying attention, that the Lauderdale Library recently purchased the photo archives of all the Pure Oil Stations erected in Memphis from the 1930s through the 1960s.

So what I want to know is: Where was this station? ... Visit Vance Lauderdale's Blog for more on this mysterious gas station.
