Vintage Parkville-Overlea: Fill'er Up

Can you guess where in the greater Parkville-Overlea area this photo was taken?

After a brief detour to check out a pretty interesting YouTube video last week, we're back to our regular format.

It's pretty obvious from the title of the article that this photo was taken at a gas station, but do you know which one?

The photo, which was posted to the Facebook group "You Know You're From Parkville, Md When..." by user Joseph E. Smith, was taken in the early 1960's. It's hard to believe now that at the time gas was around 34 cents per gallon.

Do you know where this photo was taken? Share your best guess and your memories of old-time Parkville-Overlea in the comments. Be sure to email editor Nick Gestido if you think you might have a good photo for the Vintage Parkville-Overlea feature.

Is it Exxon? I guess it isn't because I don't see a tiger. Citgo?

Okay maybe not Citgo but how about Esso

I think it's Smith & Leverton Citgo (Cities Service) currently a 7-11 on Harford Road in Carney just north of the Beltway.
