Amoco on Teal Rd. in Lafayette, Indiana 1995 by John Cirillo






Here are two shots of a 'Standard' Amoco station around Holly, MI
undergoing transition from Amoco to BP. The station still sports the
large freeway 'Standard' sign. The signs are the only things that
have not changed to BP.

Logansport, Indiana on Hwy 24, 1997 by Sonya Cirillo (gone now)






Two shots of McFalls Amoco, still alive and no sign of BP in 2004.
Station is located at 208 S. Old US 41 at Spies St., Boswell, Indiana.
Taken March 21, 2004 by John Cirillo.
Note: In 2006 I saw this station again. The Amoco sign is gone,
And there is a new sign stating "McFall's Service" with the prices below.
So he has gone unbranded.

Here is a pre-1972 Standard (Indiana) torch & oval, it was put in about 6 or 7 years ago.
Looks like an old expressway or freeway size sign.
Then there's the up to date Amoco, but the pole hasn't been painted white.
Plus the trim on the building (out of shot) is BP green & yellow.

Old Amoco in Titusville, FL on US 1, greeting northbound travelers.
The sign is extraordinarily large, Interstate size. It will likely
be replaced by a standard-sized BP sign by the new owners.

Note: As of July 14, 2004, this is still an Amoco station, per Bill Newkirk.

Hi-Pointe Amoco, St. Louis, MO.
Nothing can quite prepare you for your first sight of the mammoth Hi-Pointe Amoco sign
at the corner of Skinker and Clayton in St. Louis, Missouri.
I am starting with a smaller picture and then the next two are bigger.
This may take some time on a dialup connection, but I promise it's worth the wait!


Here is the Hi-Pointe Amoco station as viewed from the eastern approach.
We have just exited on Clayton from westbound I-64.
We are sitting at the intersection of Clayton and Skinker.

Here is a bigger picture, standing next to Clayton and looking back to the east at the sign.

The last and biggest picture, standing at the edge of the parking lot looking up.
That speck in the sky is a jet airliner.
Photo taken July 2, 2004 by Sonya Cirillo.
As can be seen, the station has converted to the BP color scheme.
Though the big Amoco sign is considered a landmark, I am afraid that its days are numbered. Hope I'm wrong.
