Hi Tom, I went on google street view. I believe you are correct. The house to the right, appears to still exist on Chambers St., and looks nearly the same, except there are windows on the porch. The Amoco station on the left, is Smokey's Garage, at the corner of Ashmore and Chambers. The ESSO station, further up is either at the corner of Emory or Roebling. Bartolini's Bar was on Morris, so that leaves Emory and Roebling. I know there was a gas station at Roebling. The car being worked on in the Atlantic station, is a 1949 Mercury sedan and the car parked at the curb, is a 1939 Chevrolet. I passed this intersection hundreds of times, on my way to my grandmother's house on Woodland St. Nice photo. rayfromvillapark
"HIGH ARC" was gas marketed by Atlantic in our area and is on the sign in the lower left.
Use the magnification and you can make out "ATLANTIC" on the gas pump. My Aunt was secretary to the "Big Wig" of Atlantic in Philly.
HI GUYS.... I RECALL THAT GAS STATION ON THE CORNER OF CHAMBERS AND LIBERTY AS A HESS STATION. THE PRICE WAS 12 CENTS A GALLON AND THE CLEANED YOUR WINDSHIELD ALONG WITH CHECKING YOUR TIRE. THAT WAS IN THE 1930'S. REGARDS.
You were right. It was an Atlantic Gas Station owned by Harold Betchel. I lived right around the corner on then called East Washington St. That was a great shot of Gus Heintz's Bar. Mrs. Heintz had the best deviled crab cakes around. I used to sell Kool Aid in front of the house next door. The McCoy's lived there.
Tom you are correct. :)
