Default Gulf or ESSO?

Many nice pix, and it's hard to dissect them all. My recollection is that, back in the day, gas stations had disticntive architecture. Among other features, Esso had a red lipstick roof feature. I always thought of the Yum Yum shop as being a former Esso/Exxon station. To me Gulf had their orange signs but nothing distinctive about architecture. YumYum = Esso, n'est ce pas?

This pic indicates that the Yum Yum Shop was previously a Gulf Station.

I remember the Esso station quite well. It was located on the hill across from the A&P (which is now Hunters Supermarket). This was made into a nice little park once the station closed.

This old fashioned Esso gas station was rather unique as it did not have a car lift; rather it had a deep cement trench that the mechanic had to step down into in order to work under the vehicles. It was a very small Gas Station.

McDude is correct in that the Gulf Station was located at the current Yum Yum Shop, but prior to that it was located at the Ford Dealership across the street.

These pits were phased out because too many mechanics were killed or injured using them. Heavier-than-air fumes and gases would collect in the pits causing the mechanic to pass out or suffocate if no one noticed their distress.

I was a mechanic at the chevy dealer in wolfboro many years ago and we had those pits. Made certain jobs easy but really was dangerous aside from the fumes there was the issue of falling in or driving a car over the edge. At the time it was called Kamler Chevrolt and Buick and was located sort of behind Hunters grocery. (was it called that then, 40+ years ago?)

The Time Traveler tells us (a few posts above) that it was an A&P at one time.

The A&P was in front of Kamler which before that was Hart's garage. The Rite Aid went in there and is now Walgreen's.

Cate Park was dedicated in 1967 on the site of what had been the Ann Inn and then, from the early 1940s onward, an Esso Service Station. At one time, Fred E. Varney was proprietor. Also, depicted in the background, is the old Lakeshore R.R. Station which is now the Dockside Restaurant.

The A&P that I spoke about was the more modern one that was on the hill where Hunters Supermarket is today.

I was not aware of the original A&P on Railroad Ave. Nice photo!

Thanks for posting this picture.... It's amazing that this waterfront gas station was turned into such a desirable small public park with beautiful views of the lake.

Fred Varney is a familiar name and had his hands on a lot of things......

When I worked in one of those pits, the obvious dangers were the scorpions at the bottom! (This was in South Miami, FL, where I worked on some interesting foreign cars, including the Amphicar!).

We are talking about two A & P s. It was where the Stationery Shop used to be which is now Back Bay Clothing and then moved up the hill where Hunter's Shop and Save is now. The First National was where Dive Winnipesaukee is now but then moved to where Harvest Market is now.

A neighbor's incredibly luxurious three car garage has a grease/oil pit in the center bay built by Bruin's right winger, Ukraine hockey player Dmitri Khristich in about 1998 so's he could work on his old Lada car built back in the U.S.S.R.

For a 1970's boxy Lada is best to have a grease pit. If you put that car up on a lift, the wheels or something could fall off car.

Both the Plymouth Walmart and Laconia Valvoline have oil/grease pits mostly for doing oil changes since not too many grease fittings, anymore.

The Wolfeboro Shopping Center was built in 1958 by Henry Hopewell and Frank Whipple of Tamworth. These buildings are on the original site of back bay, which was slowly filled in when the town used the area as a dumping site. From Images of America - Wolfeboro Historical Society - Arcadia Publishing - 2001

Question Stinchfield's Market?

Fred E. Varney Co. built many "camps" on the lake, with most going-in at Wolfeboro's Springfield Point.

Supervisor Gordon Colby hired me to assist. Many poured concrete foundations and wooden window screens have my handiwork in them.

To replace damaged screening, you can pry out the wooden strips and staple-in new screening. I used copper screening, when the time came for mine. (Our place was built by Fred E. Varney Co., and no rodent has ever got inside--except for a chipmunk who followed me through the door after I refilled the bird feeder).

The Lada, built in the USSR, was a FIAT, built under license. You still see them in modern YouTube dash-cam videos of Russian traffic crashes--which are epic! (Lada was not the worst car to come out of Russia).

I never heard Henry used, it was always Harry Hopewell. 'Quirky guy, who has since passed away. New to me, Hopewell Point Road could have been named after him, but he also had a remarkable brother.

Could that Wolfeboro open-air market have been Stinchfield's Market?

HopewellPoint was named after the Hopewells but he was the son. They lived in the house with the red metal roof.

Question What a Concept 💡

Elm trees on Elm Street! (Early maps showed Elm Street running down to Wolfeboro's lakefront...)

Could that be a horse-drawn Molley-the-Trolley on the right? Maybe a "Bob's Hot Dogs" wagon from 120 years ago?

Laconia Car Company has a description in Wikipedia. It says it manufactured railway cars in Laconia from 1848 to 1928. It occupied seven acres of downtown Laconia and employed as many as 500 people.

1914 was the last year of profitable operation for the company. It had been focused on electric trolley cars and became unprofitable when trolley riders switched over to automobiles like the Ford Model T, 1908-1927, the car for every man, a car that most people could actually buy.

"Employment increased to a thousand workers by 1912, but focus on electric railway cars made the company uncompetitive for conventional railway vehicles as electric railway riders began using automobiles, and 1914 was the last year of profitable operation for the company."

"Production shifted to plywood motorboats before the company closed in 1928." When a company, 1848 to 1928, switches from railroad cars and then to electric trolley cars and then to baggage and mail cars and then to plywood motorboats ...... it is not a happy future and likely to close ..... and close, it did in 1928.

Is there an historical sign in Laconia, somewhere, on the Laconia Car Company, 1848-1928, a state historical sign similar to the Belknap College sign, 1963-1973, that's in Center Harbor?

The building behind Hector's has a huge photo of the inside of that building during that time. Use the ServiceLink entrance.
