    Mystery Photo

    We have a 1920s photo of an old Derby Oil service station in Trinidad.



    Let's see if anyone recognizes where it is/was located.

    Good luck.

    Note: I'm not sure if it is still standing, but was in 1998.

    Is that the one located on the corner of Stonewall and Hwy 12?

    No, but it is/was on that side of the river.

    Even though you are affiliated with TrinidadCo Forum and this web site, you are still eligible for the intended grand prize of a free car wash in Centralia, WA on the next sunny day in the Northwest.
    (FYI - It is raining today, and rain is forecast for the remainder of the week!)

    In the meantime, during your trusted, and volunteered silence in divulging the location of our "Mystery Photo" I am providing a Google image which indicates to me that the roof is in a rather dilapidated condition. This relatively recent image indicates that the building may be still standing.

    If no member determines the station's location by tomorrow, May 18th, at 12 noon you may divulge your answer as to the building's location to claim your prize. Or, if not the guessing can continue.



    Also provided for viewing are images of two Derby Oil signs.

    Thanks to all those who participated in the quest.

    I know Charlie is very familiar with Trinidad taking all those great photos.

    Thanks Pete for the update on the old Derby Oil service station.

    The station is located on the SE corner of Kansas and Arizona.

    I will see if I can find another old photo, or part of an old photo to post.

    BTW - It's still raining up here.

    I've been through Bucoda, WA and Trinidad, WA and I am sure this service station is located in Trinidad, CO on the SE corner of Kansas and Arizona.

    Thanks for your participation.
