Brookline Boulevard Amoco Station - 1933

McRoberts' Amoco service station opened in November 1933 at Brookline Boulevard and Glenarm Avenue. Owned by Dick McRoberts in cooperation with the American Oil Company. The station had such modern conveniences as self-computing pumps and was constructed of a new-type concrete block. H.W. Boord, district representative for Amoco, said that the American Oil products are handled at the station exlusively. There was a gas station at this location from 1933 until 1984, although in later years the station was affiliated with Mobil Oil Company.
