Texaco Super Service Station
400 E. 2nd St., Winslow, AZ
The first reference to a gas station at this address that I've found is
in the July 1941 phonebook where the station is listed as Andy's Texaco
Super Service Station with the slogan, "Let Andy Do It" In the
August 1942 book it is listed as Van's Texaco Super Service Station. It
was Bert Hawkin's Texaco in 1947. By 1966 it was Allen's Texaco. This
station is directly across the road from LaPosada
and the Highway Diner.
Looking at the building, I'm kind of thinking it originally had a flat
roof that has been topped with the gable roof in the photo. The 2012
Route 66 In Arizona Historic Resource Survey lists dates for the building
as "Post 1940" and 1958, so I'm guessing the gable roof was
added in 1958.
