circa 1940s - 1950s?

This Sinclair Station was once on the southwest corner of 16th St. and Duss Ave. The Circle K convenience store is currently located on that corner.

I don't know when the photo was taken--other than, I'm guessing, in winter.

In the 1950's, this was known as Wanchick's Service Station.
