The Magnolia Petroleum Company building has retained its facade and still has a very functional presence on North Broadway!
A Picture from a Picture
A friendly young man noticed all the photo work that was going on and invited us into his place of employment to view some old pics they had hanging on their walls. Thus, this old pic of the Magnolia!
Built in 1919 and later sold to Mobile Oil Corporation. Wonder how many of us remembers Pegasus, The Flying Red Horse! The best example I know of, is in Dallas, Texas.
First Fidelity Bank is now the operator of the bldg., replacing the gas pumps with outside teller stations. I think buisness is good, an armored truck was needed to carry away money the safes wouldn't hold!
