Sinclair Gas Station drawing, based on the station still standing on South Broadway (as of this writing) in Denver, built sometime in the 1950s, I presume.

Sinclair made AM radios that looked like these pumps. Let me know if you have an extra one!

Variations on this gas station are peppered all over the Denver area. The all have that same roof over the pumps.

  1. The Sinclair station you show here shows all indications of being originally, a Phillips 66 station. Phillips used this design extensively sometime after WWII. They were designed by an architect named Clarence Reinhardt. They were once extremely common. It’s likely over the years many have been re-branded or re-purposed. Most of them had only one ‘gull-wing’. There are some pictures here - http://www.parkitecture.org/wordpress/?paged=2
