Sinclair Service Station

Photo from the collection of Jerry L. Sampson

Here is a great photo for everyone, courtesy of Jerry L. Sampson. This is a 1950s or early 1960s photo from the corner of Lexington Street and Greenville Street. Sinclair was eventually torn down and used by Charlie Carr to park cars when he owned the service station. This is the current site of King's Work Graphics and at one point, this was also the location of Green's Bait Shop. 

The two-story brick building on the right side is the former office of Dr. HD Rightmyer, family dentist, and my late father-in-law. This building was converted to offices in 1953. In 1976, the brick building was demolished to install a car wash. The alley behind the Sinclair went toward the back of Harrods Theatre, Gem Drugstore, White Cottage Restaurant, and several offices.
