Once upon a time in Ada this gas station filled the tanks of thirsty Ada vehicles.

Here's what we noticed from looking closely at the photo: Dependable Linco gas and oils, U.S. Tires, drive-in service, Pennzoil, Kleen-er Naphtha, USL battery service

The photo, from the history collection of the Ada Public Library, has the following notation on the back: Ada West Buckeye across from city building, Luther Hesser.
