Stonybrook Mobil Station

Do you remember how much you paid for a gallon of lead-filled "Regular" gas or "Special" at the Mobil station on the corner of Stonybrook Drive and Annapolis Road in June, 1973? These pictures aren't clear enough to tell what the price was at the time, but a Rochester Sentinel article from June, 1973 indicates that you might have paid as little as 36.9 cents for "Regular" and as much as 49.9 cents for "Special."

The Mobil sign in the background is on Annapolis Road (450). The traffic light at the end of Stonybrook Drive can be seen near the top left. The Belair Town townhouses can be seen to the right of the Mobil sign.

Some of the houses on Sussex Lane can be seen in the background.

  1. That second photo looks like the old Amoco station that was a block from the Mobil on 450
